Flexjet Achieves Safety Recognition

Flexjet has announced that it has been recognized as the first and only fractional jet ownership company to receive recognition from the Air Charter Safety Foundation in terms of its adherence to safety standards.

Welcoming the accreditation, Flexjet President, Fred Reid, said: “Safety is our highest priority at Flexjet, and with stringent training standards and bi-annual pilot training, we surpass even the toughest FAA requirements.”

“We are extremely honored to be the first and only fractional jet ownership company to be recognized for our achievements by the Air Charter Safety Foundation and will continue to find ways to provide a flawless experience for our customers.”

The Air Charter Safety Foundation’s Industry Audit Standard (IAS) requirements go beyond what is required to secure the already demanding ARG/US Platinum rating. The IAS is recognized as the industry’s most thorough review of a company’s compliance with safety and security regulations, as well as its development and implementation of a Safety Management System (SMS). To have a validated SMS in place ensures Flexjet’s engagement at all levels of the organization, and confirms top management’s commitment and adherence to safety. The Air Charter Safety Foundation’s extensive inspection is also the only audit that specifically evaluates compliance with the Federal Aviation Regulations for fractional jet ownership programs.

In addition, the IAS also assesses crew training, manuals, dispatch and other processes for safety and legality. Unlike other programs, operators cannot choose or hire their IAS auditors and will never have the same auditors for back-to-back audits.

Welcoming Flexjet onto the IAS registry, Air Charter Safety Foundation Chairman, Jim Christiansen commented: “Flexjet has continued to show its commitment to safety throughout the years, and our esteemed accreditation recognizes its unwavering dedication and outstanding achievements.”
