Aviation Services

Leading Edge Strategies is an aviation management training and consulting firm specializing in aviation security and airport operations staff training and consultant services. Leading Edge Strategies also provides top-of-the line security audit services directly to airports. We will not only review your systems, methods and procedures to comply with CFR Part 1542, and CFR Part 139 but also provide measurable outcomes to improve your security and ops programs and achieve a higher standard of airport safety and security.

In addition, Leading Edge Strategies offers a complete line of aviation management training services including needs assessment, metrics design to evaluate the effectiveness of training, gap analysis, Delphi analysis, and program development. Training programs can be designed so airport personnel can conduct the training — “train the trainer” — with supporting instructional materials, or training can be conducted or facilitated by Leading Edge Strategies personnel.

“Jeff has a passion for aviation, safety and operations. He is a dedicated professional and an excellent instructor. He pays attention to details that make or break the experience for students or a company that hires him.” – Elise Eberwein; EVP, People, Communications, Public Affairs

Training That Truly Works

speaking_image3_jeff_priceTraining cannot simply be left to a subject matter expert with PowerPoint. Research demonstrates that retention rates for this type of “training” to be only 10-15%.

Leading Edge Strategies’ programs use state of the art adult learner and interactive training methods and presentational technology proven to maximize information retention and use. Training designed and provided by Leading Edge Strategies is proven to have retention rates of 80-90%.

Our professionally designed programs include workbooks, class discussion and professionally produced videos – an approach that has been extensively tested. The instructional design formats used by Leading Edge Strategies include the use of programmed instruction, building blocks, and retention exercises, which results in much higher retention rates of the information. After all, retention and use is the ultimate goal of any training program. See our upcoming training programs.
