Flexjet wins ARG/US platinum safety rating

Flexjet LLC has again received the Aviation Research Group/US (ARG/US) Platinum Safety Rating, the company said.

Flexjet, which flies some of the youngest aircraft among large operators, has now earned the biennial Platinum Rating for five consecutive two-year periods since 2008. The ARG/US rating is the result of independent assessments and a multi-day, onsite audit that measures companies against the aviation industry´s best practices for safety.

ARG/US, an independent aviation research firm, provides safety ratings for aircraft operators based upon onsite audits and analyses using recognized benchmarks. Companies that have achieved the very highest safety standards earn the Platinum Rating.

The ARG/US audit requires that an air carrier 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.

Flexjet offers fractional jet ownership and leasing. The company is a member of the Directional Aviation family of companies.
