Simon Lie joins the AIRINC/Plane Sciences Team
We are pleased to announce that Simon Lie has joined AIRINC/Plane Sciences as Senior Technical Fellow/SME Consultant after an illustrious career with Boeing. Simon has become well-known in the accident investigation community and is immensely respected through his actions as a key representative of the Boeing company. Simon brings a great deal of aviation safety expertise in many areas directly related to our products and services. More and more government agencies wish to develop internal flight data analysis capabilities to better meet their ICAO Annex 13 obligations. Many agencies that already have that capability appreciate the benefits of having an expert like Simon available in the background to assist them in their hour of need. His expertise will also aid the evolution of our proactive safety systems (FOQA/FDM/FDA) for the airline safety community. We use our systems on a daily basis for routine annual FDR/CVR readouts, airline trend and incident analysis, and support for the investigation of a major accident and Simon’s expertise will help ensure our systems continue evolving to meet the broad spectrum of needs throughout our user community. Many of you know Simon over the years from his participation at international conferences, support of investigations involving Boeing aircraft, and his work on the ICAO Accident Investigation Panel. Please do not hesitate to reach out and say hello to him in this new role .
