Some of our clients and partners took the BowTieXP software to the next level and initiated various projects.
These projects also benefit ‘defense aviation organizations’.

Significant Seven

The Civil Aviation Authority

Significant Seven

The CAA, UK’s specialist aviation regulator is developing BowTie models covering each of the CAA’s ‘Significant Seven’ safety issues.

Working closely together with the industry, the shared goal is a balanced risk overview for the whole aviation system. Find out more on their website.


The Aloft Group


Common Aviation Risk Models (CARM) involves the joint development and sharing of bowtie risk models by industry experts. Models cover the key hazards associated with all aspects of aviation operations. CARM becomes the place where risk understanding can be captured and incorporated continuously.

This project is using CGE’s BowTieServer solution.
