    Jim W, U.S. Army, Software/Systems.
  • “I would like to say thank you for the two days. This training was exactly what I needed. And "truly" it was an excellent presentation of a dry topic. At the beginning of the training you asked the question who has read your book. "Truly", it was this terrific book which made me believing that there is a way for me to understand how the DOs should be transferred to the "real world".

    Hans J, Head of Quality, Platforms, and Control Systems, Germany.
  • “I have found that your white papers contain important information, are well written, succinct, and easy to interpret/comprehend.”

    Kevin H, Manager, Rockwell Collins, USA.
  • “I recently followed a two-day course on DO-178 and DO-254 by Vance Hilderman and it saved me a lot of time. The course gave me an excellent introduction to the matter, focus on what really matters, and clear indications for further in-depth study.”

    Roberto B, Professor, University of Parma, Italy.
  • “Thank you for your excellent training made the last three days. This will help us to better understand the changes related to DO-178C.”
