Southpac Aerospace is expanding its capabilities to become a one-stop advisory, consultancy, training and certification service provider to the aviation industry.

Southpac’s Director of Aviation Consulting and Advisory, Gareth Coe, is building the organisation’s consulting capacity to become the go-to service provider for aviation assurance, advisory, consultancy, training and certification.

As a highly regarded training and assurance provider to the aviation industry throughout Asia Pacific for more than two decades, this expanded capability is the next step, anchored by Southpac’s reputation for excellence.

Steering Southpac’s new Consulting and Advisory division, Gareth said the organisation is listening to what the industry really needs and is tailoring products accordingly. “We’re putting aviation clients at the forefront of our service.”

“Southpac has built an enviable reputation through a relentless customer focus and relationship-based approach, providing decades of quality service and value to the industry. When you appoint us for any project – big or small – you will receive passionate and experienced aviation professionals who have operated across the pointy end of an aviation business and understand your challenges and restrictions.

“We’re not career consultants who read everything from a manual. Our team has lived, breathed and applied solutions in operational settings and know what will and won’t work for you. We have a very talented team on hand, and we’re proud to be delivering more solutions to the aviation sector.”

With audit, assurance and management systems expertise still at the heart of the offering, Southpac’s newly expanded Consulting & Advisory services include aerodrome operations, covering regional and major airports, alongside safety, quality, risk and compliance management, as well as global expertise in aviation advisory.

The strategic move into airport operations and planning comes off the back of Gareth’s extensive background in operational and senior management-level roles at international airports, and the organisation has now joined the Australian Airports Association (AAA).

Southpac’s expanded Aviation Advisory offering is also led by Steve Walters, bringing an unrivalled depth of experience to the organisation’s capacity to advise on managing aviation operations in high risk environments.

Gareth added, “From operator audits and systems improvement, up to high level strategy and planning, our growing team can provide the highest level of quality, professionalism and value.”
