Community of Excellence

Welcome to the SM4 Community of Excellence

The unique quality and depth of aviation safety resources found in the innovative SM4 program is the result of the combined expertise of the program partners. The extensive training and response knowledge possessed by these individuals and organizations provides a 360-degree view of aviation safety and risk management.

In 2016, SM4 launched the Community of Excellence to promote a new concept that would elevate the program and deliver unmatched service to the aviation industry. For 2017, the Partners and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) continue to revolutionize the program to make it more visible and provide easy access to the many aviation safety benefits it provides.

The Community of Excellence provides three levels of service: Level I – complimentary industry resources, Level II – Global Aerospace client services and Level III – Global Aerospace Elite services.
