“As Director of Aviation for a private midwest financial institution I had the pleasure of vetting and using Walt Kraujalis of Aeronomx for my IS-BAO stage one certification. Walt is an aviation attorney with expertise in sales and acquisitions, business development and due diligence, aircraft-selection analysis, and safety/management/ISBAO consulting, among other areas. Walter was a pleasure to work with and proved to be professional, knowledgeable, and provided guidance during the process. I recommend Walter to those seeking to take their flight operation to the next level in best practices and creating a culture of safety in their organization” Director of Aviation Midland Financial
“In our recent IS-BAO audit we found Walter to be a consummate professional in his role during this process. His approach is to share his expertise in a way that is productive, positive, nonjudgmental & helpful. The end result defines how we better manage & maintain our safety culture. Based on that experience with Walter I would recommend his services to any of my colleagues.” Aviation Manager Nordstrom, Inc.
“I have been a part of three audits conducted by Walter. Stage One and Stage Two at my company and Stage Two at our sister company, Electric Boat. Walter previews all material and is well prepared prior to arrival. His audit is conducted in a relaxed business environment that is very professional. He is thorough and in-depth yet fair and does not get bogged down or focused on one area. At the same time his audit provides good observations and helpful inputs/suggestions. He knows the IS-BAO audit system and is well qualified to audit small or large corporate flight departments. I have recommended him to other Companies and look forward to using him again in the coming year.” Chief Pilot General Dynamics/Bath Iron Works
“The entire process of undergoing the audit and earning the IS-BAO Certification with Walter and his Team was valuable, we learned a great deal about our organization, its processes and procedures. It was also a great way to take our department to the next level. We plan to repeat this process biannually.” Director of Aviation Rocky Mountain Aviation, LLC.
