XOJET, the provider of on-demand private jet travel, has responded to a 2017 business surge with heightened investments in safety, flight standards and training, the company said.
The company recently announced the appointment of talented aviation industry veteran, Daniel Ramirez, formerly at Embraer Aircraft Corporation, as its new director of safety.
Further, driven by a 13% increase in new membership programs under the newly minted XOJET Access Solutionsâ¢, which launched earlier this year, the company has doubled the size and reach of its Flight Standards Department and executed the on-demand private aviation industry´s first Line Operations Safety Assessment (LOSA). XOJET is the first Part 135 operator to conduct this rigorous program, which strengthens the company´s already robust set of safety protocols.
Over a period of seven months, to execute the Line Operations Safety Assessment (LOSA), specially trained XOJET pilots observed 132 flights, or line observations. At the completion of the observation period, the aggregate results were used to reinforce flight standards and training.
XOJET´s expanded Flight Standards Department, launched in tandem with LOSA, now numbers 30 standards captains and eight FAA designated check pilots. The combination of LOSA and the company´s expanded training capabilities together act as a quality assurance feedback loop, further bolstering XOJET´s capabilities as the premier, on-demand private aviation solutions platform.
As director of safety, Daniel Ramirez oversees the execution and coordination of the Safety Management System. Previously holding the positions of flight safety manager at Embraer Executive Jets, operational safety officer of North America for Embraer Commercial Jets and corporate air safety officer at Embraer Defense and Security, Ramirez brings to XOJET more than 15 years of aviation experience in flight training and safety, regulatory compliance, and risk management. His outstanding credentials also include advisory positions to the NBAA safety committee, the Flight Safety Foundation Business Aviation Council, FAA´s GA-Joint Steering Committee and the ICAO Regional Aviation Safety Group.
Founded in 2006, XOJET is the largest on-demand private aviation services platform in North America, blending the expertise of a fleet owner-operator with the client-centric approach of a brokerage. Built upon the foundation of trusted advice and personalized service, the company now serves over 7,000 businesses and individual clients. XOJET owns and operates the largest on-demand fleet of Bombardier Challenger 300 and Cessna Citation X super mid-size private jets. The company also offers a suite of industry-leading membership programs, providing XOJET clients with preferential fleet access and pricing, a broad range of value-added travel services, and access to a portfolio of world-class and distinguished brands.
