Aviation Experts

The aviation group at Robson Forensic is comprised of seasoned aviation experts with deep roots in both government and industry. From cabin safety to airport engineering; the forensic experts at Robson Forensic are well equipped to assist in your investigation.

Specialized Expertise in Fixed-Wing and Rotary-Wing Aircraft

Our aviation experts are regularly retained to investigate crashes involving both fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. The construct of our Aviation practice group allows us to provide qualified expert analysis and testimony on a range of issues that could contribute to an aviation mishap. These include material failure analysis as a result of design, installation or maintenance, aeronautical decision making, and aviation crash reconstruction. Not all aviation claims, however, are crash related.

Non-Crash Investigations

The aviation industry is heavily regulated, with strict standards for airframe and component maintenance, certification requirements for maintenance providers, and extensive record keeping protocols. These standards are in place to ensure the safety of all who interact with an aircraft, whether in-flight or on the ground. In many instances our aviation experts are tasked with analyzing the actions of maintenance and ground crew; investigating a range of injuries occurring in planes and jetways; and addressing a variety of property and revenue loss claims. Additionally, our civil engineering capabilities allow us to opine on the engineering plans for airport and runway expansion projects and airport construction.

Aviation Evidence & Testing

Robson Forensic offers a fully appointed mechanical testing laboratory to assist our clients with the inspection and storage of evidence in aviation cases. Our lab facilities can accommodate large evidence items and are equipped to perform testing on a variety of electrical and mechanical devices. Visit our Mechanical Testing Laboratory page for more information.
