Landauer Aviation Consulting – Nick Landauer FRAeS


With aviation safety as his prime professional concern and interest, and after completing a 35 year career with the UK Civil Aviation Authority, Nick Landauer now markets his skills, knowledge and experience – principally as a trainer, but also for compliance monitoring, regulatory auditing and aviation consulting – through Landauer Aviation Consulting Limited. Nick has worked almost exclusively in Flight Operations and has extensive knowledge of associated International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), European and UK National legislation, rules, regulations and guidance material.

Working in the UK, across Europe, Central Asia and in the USA, with clients including Baines Simmons Limited, UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), Bureau Veritas and McKechnie Aviation Limited, Nick continues to use and build upon his experience of delivering effective training in international forums, conducting compliance audits and advising on matters related to Air Operations.


Nick’s background at the UK CAA included many years as an Inspecting Officer (Operations) in which capacity he audited and inspected UK air operators both nationally and worldwide. He worked extensively in designing and delivering training packages and managed teams of operational support and technical staff responsible for all aspects of Air Operator Certificate and Approval processing. In Europe he worked in close liaison with EASA Air Operations Standardisation teams and, internationally, represented UK CAA on IATA IOSA and ISAGO Oversight Committees.  In addition, Nick has senior management experience of working on and leading a variety of projects, including the implementation of EU-OPS and AIR OPS as successive replacement operating regulations for both the Industry and the UK CAA. Nick also designed and then managed Flight Operations Department’s internal Quality Assurance system for over 10 years.
