Flexjet gets 17th FAA Diamond Award for Excellence

Flexjet LLC has been awarded by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) its 17th consecutive Diamond Award for Excellence, the company said.

Flexjet has garnered more FAA Diamond Awards than any other provider of private jet travel.

To qualify for the FAA Diamond Award, the highest honor within the William (Bill) O´Brien Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards Program, 100 percent of Flexjet´s maintenance technicians must participate in continued learning training programs over a 12-month period which exceeds recommended industry standard in aircraft systems, regulations and FAA rules. The threshold for training participation has grown over the years, making this year´s achievement more challenging and remarkable.

Flexjet maintains one of the most rigorous safety standards in the aviation industry. In addition to being awarded the FAA Diamond Award more than any other provider of private jet travel, Flexjet was the first fractional jet ownership program to meet the increasingly strict Industry Audit Standard of the Air Charter Safety Foundation, and also maintains a Platinum Rating within the ARG/US Safety Rating.

Flexjet first entered the fractional jet ownership market in 1995, and celebrated its 20th anniversary in May 2015. Flexjet offers fractional jet ownership and leasing. Flexjet´s fractional aircraft program is the first in the world to be recognized as achieving the Air Charter Safety Foundation´s Industry Audit Standard, and Flexjet is the first and only company to be honored with its 17th FAA Diamond Award for Excellence.
