Global Aerospace, Inc. and ICF SH&E Announce Strategic Safety Partnership

November 8, 2011

Parsippany, New Jersey—Global Aerospace, Inc. announces the formation of a strategic partnership with ICF SH&E as part of a planned expansion to the SM4 program.

Global Aerospace created, developed and fully sponsors the program. It is a clearing house for aviation safety resources and is a focal point for safety communication and synergy. Dedicated to reducing aviation related mishaps, the SM4 program focuses on the four essential aspects of a proactive safety culture: PLANNING, PREVENTION, RESPONSE and RECOVERY.

SM4 program expertise is provided by internationally recognized SM4 safety partners. Convergent Performance, LLC supports SM4 Human Factors initiatives; Baldwin Aviation supports SM4 Safety Systems initiatives; Fireside Partners, LLC supports SM4 Emergency Response and Recovery initiatives. ICF SH&E will now support safety, security and regulatory compliance initiatives for commercial operators.

Jeffrey Bruno, Chief Underwriting Officer at Global Aerospace said, “We always planned to evolve the SM4 program and the interest and feedback we have received has exceeded our wildest expectations. Our partnership with ICF SH&E not only refreshes and improves what is already the aviation industry’s leading safety program, it significantly expands our suite of safety products. We think the addition of ICF SH&E will be of particular interest to airlines, large commercial general aviation operators, airports, and product manufacturers.”

Mr. Lou Sorrentino, ICF SH&E Vice President for Safety, Security and Regulatory Compliance said, “We’re pleased to join SM4. The opportunity to interact constructively with the partners as we work toward a common goal is most welcome.”
