together we will maximize the probability of success
Airlines, airports, suppliers of technology & services operate in an intensely competitive market. At the same time aviation is one of the most regulated industries. Safety always prevails and reducing environmental impact is high on all agenda's.
Success is so much more than making profit or correctly fulfilling a regulatory role. It means adding value. Value creation is only possible through team work at the next level. Connecting people, ideas and interests is wrapped in the DNA of WLTKaviation, it's our purpose.

love to work for
Aviation consultancies tend to be highly specialized in specific knowledge or processes. It makes it possible to excel in dedicated areas. Delivering leadership and project management in highly multi-disciplinary or multi-interest ventures asks for competences that don't mix with the 'specialist way of working'. WLKTaviation focuses explicitly on leadership and project management. Understanding aviation by 25 years of industry experience and keeping up with state of the art innovation approaches.

guiding principles on selected topics
Each situation asks for a specific approach. There are hardly any blue prints at hand when it comes to complex matters. Being dogmatic makes you overlook things, ignore signals and miss opportunities. But concerning beliefs & behavior there are principles Dinand is guided by. Some examples on selected topics.
Success is much more than making profit. Adding real value is what it is about, regardless of your position in the value chain.
Leave everything you touch in the world a little bit better behind than it was.
Set preconditions and facilitate, but also, intervene, direct, and exert influence. Such personal interventions require self-knowledge and an active interest in other people. Detect pattern breaks, but create them as well: momentum!
