Aviation Senior Consultant

ICFs Aviation practice is one of the world's leading specialist aviation consulting teams, providing objective, independent commercial, financial, technical, and regulatory guidance across all aviation sectors globally.

Whilst we advise all sectors within the aviation industry, we work as one global team. This provides our Senior Consultants with the unique opportunity to work across a range of service lines and geographies, building a strong aviation knowledge base before choosing an area of specialism. Projects range from on-site operational improvement analysis, sustainability strategies, investment due-diligence, developing airline and airport strategies, and asset valuations. You will also have the opportunity to work in emerging markets such as Sustainable Aviation Fuels and electric aviation. We also have opportunities for Senior Consultants with prior relevant experience to specialize in our aircraft finance, air service development and sustainable aviation service lines.

A typical day in the life of an Aviation Senior Consultant would involve managing smaller projects, guiding junior staff, managing day-to-day communication with clients and delivering solutions to problems using a variety of analytical techniques. You will also be expected to contribute to our IP and business development efforts by building a network of client relationships, working on proposals, attending conferences, and contributing to ICF’s thought leadership. This position can be based in Fairfax/Reston, VA or NYC, NY.
