For one simple reason: Results.
Many consulting or professional services companies state they can get the work done, but after agreements are signed, results never come, they are late, or they never address their clients’ primary concerns.
With us on your side, expect the opposite and at a price that will make you smile. We will not riddle you with fancy reports, fancy presentations, fancy excuses, nor fancy lunches. We will address your concerns swiftly and with practical advice or solutions you can use.
Or, if you need an unbiased view of your problems and how to solve them – or – simply need some extra horsepower to get the job done fast, please let us know. We will work closely with you, listen, and ask the right questions. Thereafter, we will follow up with a proposal that will “tickle your fancy” and yield the results you expect.
If we cannot solve your challenges or business needs, we will definitely let you know as well. After all, why would we want to waste your time and money?
Yes. With minimal overhead costs and the application of both lean and agile processes, we deliver results at a price that create positive, unsurpassed value.
If we did, why hire us? Our primary job is to help solve your problems or help you avoid mistakes by challenging your assumptions, thoughts, methodologies, and processes.
Mostly, our clients hire us for the following reasons:
- They need a fresh perspective
- They need extra horsepower
- They need specialized skills
- They want a safe zone
- They need results that generate value
We are unable to share in writing samples of our work, but will be more than happy to share some of our hard copy documents via secure, online tools or when we meet.
Yes. If requested, we provide them after our initial discussions are complete and as the final step before you sign our services agreement.
Yes. Without hesitation, we invest our time, resources, and full knowledge base to ensure they succeed.

Many of us have earned Bachelor’s (BS), Master’s (MS), or Doctoral (PhD) degrees and have achieved specialized certification status within the areas we serve. Combined, we offer more than 100 years of aviation, aerospace, and defense experience.

We usually meet with our clients at their desired location where productive, purpose-driven meetings and learning sessions are conducted. If the client prefers, we meet at our offices. Meetings are planned in advance and supported by a mutually-agreed agenda.
Each engagement process is unique. However, the usual steps are:
- Initial phone call or email to understand your basic needs
- Review and assess your basic needs
- Determine if we can help you and provide value
- If yes, we may request additional information
- Upon reaching consensus, we will present a proposed agreement for your approval
- Upon parties approval, work begins per the plan presented in the final agreement
It all depends.
For projects that do not require in-depth evaluation or research, we can usually complete them within hours or days.
For more complex projects, we will work closely with you to formulate a mutually-agreeable action plan and schedule.
As a courtesy, we always remind our clients that actual completion dates may depend on factors such as: Level of client’s participation, availability of data, availability of resources, midstream scope changes, financial support, and other factors outside our reach.
Yes. Working faster may require additional resources, resource-leveling, re-evaluating lean processes, or working longer hours – all or some of which may require revising the current agreement or attaching an “expedite fee” to the project.
At Omnia Aerospace, we custom-craft every schedule per your specifications and back it up with sign-off, monitoring and risk mitigation processes that prevent project delays.
If your project is late, however, we will present a comprehensive report and recovery plan that will address the delays. A Root Cause Analysis and Impact Assessment is always included in the report.
Yes. Depending on circumstances or the type of project, we prefer to sign a mutual NCA or NDA in order to protect our own crown jewels.
After signing an agreement with us, and payments have been made per the terms and conditions of the agreement, we schedule a kick-off meeting with all stakeholders.
During the kick-off meeting, we ask questions, listen, and interact with those present to gather additional information which we use to fine-tune the project purpose, scope, budget, timeline, and action plan. Thereafter, we monitor the project to ensure it’s on track and all deliverables completed per the agreement.
If no kick-off meeting is required, we assign the project directly to affected team members. Prior to the assignments, however, we ensure each team member has been briefed on the project, the expected deliverables, and the associated timeline.
Depending on the project or consulting agreement, secure proprietary tools may be used to communicate with affected clients.
Our prices vary. Depending on the type of project or services needed, we price our services based on the following contract types:
- Hourly (1 hour minimum)
- Cost plus Fixed Fee (with or without incentives)
- Fixed Price or Lump Sum
Yes. We promise to deliver the results established in the agreement or make it right – all at no extra cost to you.
We accept the following:
- For Hourly services: No refund.
- For Cost plus Fixed Fee, Fixed Price (Lump Sum), or Retainer services: Per the signed agreement.
Great question. Our name was selected based on the number and type of services we provide, our reach, and the main industry we serve.
In Latin, the word “Omnia” means: All Things, Global, In All Respects.
