RTI has a long history conducting independent investigations to assist manufacturers and airlines resolve safety issues arising from aircraft accidents and incidents. This includes core competencies and capabilities to investigate, research, and report on both small and catastrophic accidents; analyze material failures; capture forensic imagery; and produce computer animations of flight paths and tutorial visualisations of key technical issues.

Structured to respond quickly to events, RTI maintains a staff much like that of an official governmental investigatory branch or board that enables a managed team approach when required. In fact, the RTI aviation team includes former members of state accident investigation offices and heads of airline and aircraft manufacturing safety departments.

RTI is also the producer of the internationally acclaimed AViCON conferences, a series of aviation disaster management and resolution educational programs.
