Fifth ARGUS Platinum for Flexjet
Fractional ownership company Flexjet recently received the biennial Aviation Research Group/US (ARG/US) Platinum safety rating for the fifth consecutive time since 2008. The company also pursued and completed an IS-BAO audit and is registered as compliant with the global standard.
According to a company statement, the Platinum award was the result of independent assessments and a multi-day, onsite audit that measures companies against the aviation industry’s best practices for safety. The audit requires an air carrier to have a well-developed safety management system, a clear and workable emergency response plan, effective policies and procedures as well as documented records for all major aspects of operations and maintenance.

“Of all the awards and distinctions Flexjet has received through the years, none means so much to us as the ARG/US Platinum safety rating, which goes to the heart of our mission: the safe passage of our owners, clients and flight crews,” commented Flexjet CEO Michael Silvestro. “Earning this award for the fifth time is the result of the dedication of our pilots and flight crews, our operations staff and our maintenance and ground crews.”
Only 6% of the nation’s 2,159 commuter, charter and on-demand aviation companies are rated Platinum by ARG/US.
