Introduction to
Southpac Aerospace

What our clients say about us:

Excellent facilitator with extensive industry experience who uses a great range of teaching skills and techniques. The emphasis on Human Factors and practical reality was really appreciated!

Aviation SMS Course

Nick D’Allesandro, Air Tasmania

Again, super well organised from the minute we registered through to great venue, content and delivery. Your courses are fantastic!

Safety Investigators Course

Sarah Kane, Menzies Aviation (New Zealand)

Facilitation and delivery was exceptional. Clearly the facilitator is an SMS expert in the subject. Access to the website post course will be extremely useful in the future. Course objectives were fully met and content targeted learner requirements.

Aviation SMS Course

Dean Bzadough, Department of Defence

I used to write this training off a long time ago as…… ridiculous, a waste of time etc. But I know I was misinformed and incorrect then. It is exactly what the aviation engineering fraternity need. A gentle shake and facts placed in front of our faces.

Human Factors Course

James Reynolds, Leonardo

I recently attended the SMS Aviation course in Melbourne, run by Matt McKay. It was fantastic, I got everything I needed to out of it and a lot more. The professionalism of Matt and how he delivered the course was the real highlight. He was very engaging and got everyone involved. The actual content of the course was first class and the vast resources that are now accessible by all attendees post course is really beneficial. I would definitely attend another Southpac course, I was thoroughly impressed.

Aviation SMS Course 

Joshua Miller , Avinet

Thank you David and Southpac Aerospace for the outstanding Lead Auditors Course you conducted for us at Fiji Link (Nadi, Fiji) last month. I was always the ‘auditee’ for so many years..through this training, the ‘shoe is on the other foot’ and I now have such a better understanding & scope of knowledge and skills as a lead auditor. Thank you very much David & the team! I have learnt that quality preparation is vital to any audit and always looking out for processes of continuous improvement…keep up the great work!!!

Safety & Lead Auditors Course 

Una Qarikau, Fiji Link

I was sceptical about attending but it was an excellent five days and a lots of effort has obviously gone into this course. There was great mixture of practical and theory and the facilitation was outstanding…

Aviation SMS Course

Peter Gough, Marker Aviation Services

I recently completed the 5 day Lead Auditor training and found this course to be the most valuable and comprehensive training I have completed in 25 years in the Aviation industry. I feel more than comfortable that I can now carry out a successful audit with the skills and tips I received on this course.
Facilitators, administrators, venue and course content including a live audit was excellent. Thank you to the whole Southpac team.

Safety & Lead Auditors Course

Paul Grewcoe, Qantas

Completed the AML & SCI courses in Melbourne. I had the best training experience with Southpac. Excellent facilitators, well informed with a passion in what they teach. The participants were great and we could not have had a better team. Southpac Aerospace, the value training organisation in providing professional aerospace management training.

Advanced Management & Leadership and Systems for Continual Improvement Courses

Nellie Tuami, Heli Niugini
Well run, well-structured course. A lot of information to cover in 5-days but David was excellent in managing its pace and ensuring the content was understood by all.

Safety and Lead Auditors Course

Joshua Haslemore, Air New Zealand

The perfect platform for a company to enhance it’s QMS. The course was well run and the facilitator was very well informed, and current within the aviation industry. Couldn’t have picked a better training provider.

Safety & Lead Auditors Course

Michael Eastwood, CTC Aviation Training

Without a doubt the best leadership and management training I’ve done.

Advanced Management and Leadership Course 

Liam Alexander, Boeing

I have found a great deal of value in the content, improving my knowledge and confidence regarding audits.

Safety and Lead Auditors Course 

I must say that Southpac’s reputation for excellence is well deserved. I thoroughly enjoyed the course with Rob and am looking forward to completing the Safety and Lead Auditors course as well.

Systems for Continual Improvement Course

Thank you for providing an interesting and interactive course. I was apprehensive about it being online but the facilitator kept me engaged throughout and I found the breakout room activities extremely helpful in the application of the theory.
