I started my aviation career as a pilot in the Royal Netherlands Air Force. After thirty years of flying, managing, and gaining considerable experience with humans and their behaviour, I retired from the Air Force and started van Asselt Advies. Initially I limited myself to Human Factor- and Crew Resource Management Training and support, working for airlines, the national emergency helicopter services and maintenance organisations. After a few years I was asked to provide several workshops abroad. That worked out pretty good and from then on I also provide 3-day and 5-day workshops on Human Factors and Human Behaviour. My former job in the Air Force also gave me the opportunity to gain experience with complicated but effective safety management systems. I decided to take some additional SMS-training and attended masterclasses on Human Error en Safety Systems. From 2013 on I provide Safety Management Systems (SMS) training and implementation support for airlines, companies and even several Civil Aviation Authorities on the modern aviation SMS’s and SSP’s. Furthermore I am available as interim Safety Manager for initial implementation and upgrading of the Safety Management System.
Besides the Human Factors and SMS training, workshops and support, I assist companies in acquiring Part 21, Part M, AOC and ATO certifications.
Since Human Factors Training and the use of Safety Management Systems continuously prove their value in aviation I like to share my aviation expertise with organisations, healthcare and companies outside aviation as well. They can all benefit greatly from the proven aviation practices.
