CSSI, Inc. leverages deep roots in aviation to develop customized solutions that enhance productivity, decrease costs, and improve safety.


More planes in the sky.  Stricter regulations. Increased competition for travelers, airspace and funding.  CSSI delivers comprehensive solutions and expertise needed by stakeholders in all aspects of aviation to navigate a complex and evolving aviation industry. We provide objective, independent regulatory, technical, and commercial guidance to aviation clients, including airlines, airports, U.S. federal agencies, and international organizations. Our team of experts helps aviation clients manage assets and operations, mitigate risk, and maximize return on investment.


Our team has participated first-hand in the evolution of the aviation industry over the last two decades. We’ve supported NextGen initiatives that cut flight miles and increase fuel savings. We’ve developed, implemented and operated safety management systems and have developed a model that will predict, and thus avoid, factors that could cause future safety incidents. We’ve created newer, stronger safety standards, and we’ve helped maximize airspace capacity through reduced vertical separation minimum (RVSM) monitoring. 

We apply our aviation expertise across many disciplines, by:

  • Bringing first-hand commercial airline perspectives to federal programs, such as the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration’s NextGen initiative
  • Using regulatory insights from our public-sector work in our engagements with commercial carriers
  • Applying our understanding of the aviation industry and all its components to helping new users, such as unmanned aerial systems (UAS), integrate into and navigate the National Airspace System (NAS)

Our multidisciplinary teams include air traffic control experts, commercial and military pilots, aerospace and aeronautical engineers, and safety and transportation experts who offer highly specialized skills in aviation fundamentals.

In addition, through countless client engagements, CSSI has developed proprietary databases and analytic tools that help aviation clients collect and analyze data to identify hazards, trends and emerging threats to incidents before they occur.
