Each year, more than 1,500 new and modified aeronautical products built or operated nationwide are approved by Transport Canada. For all of these, reducing risks and costs all while innovating quickly comes as a big challenge.

This is where consultancy companies come in place. Marinvent is one of them, and with an independent team of highly experienced staff is the ideal choice for training, services and consulting in the aerospace sector, regardless of the size and complexity of the project.

“Flight tests, certification, and evaluation programs are risky. They’re expensive, they take a long time, and as an industry, we’re perversely averse to risk. We’re here to help reduce it”, says Phil Cole, Marinvent’s VP of business development in this Skies Magazine article.

Marinvent has fixed and rotary wing test pilots and independent TCCA DARs that hold current Flight Analyst, Flight Test, Software, Hardware & TSO delegations. Marinvent’s customers include aircraft OEMs, integrators, tier 1s, tier 2s and Government customers around the world.
