Private Jet Safety
STAjets maintains the highest safety standards. Modeled after the airline industry and managed by a former military professional, STAjets delivers safety that exceeds Federal Aviation Administration standards.
Safety Management System
The business aviation Safety Management System (SMS) is a quality management approach to controlling flight-related risks. Aviation SMS programs provide accessible tools for monitoring safety-related processes. Through the use of Safety Management Systems, business aircraft operators can proactively identify and manage risks. Under a formalized SMS, operators identify potential hazards and ensure that a process is put in place to effectively manage them. STAjets has developed its own SMS, which incorporates operational risk profiling with internal evaluation and quality assurance concepts, resulting in more structured management and continuous improvement of the operational process.
International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations
The International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (ISBAO) was formally introduced by the International Business Aviation Council and made available to the business aviation community at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibit in Geneva, Switzerland, in May 2002. ISBAO was developed by the business aviation industry for the benefit of all corporate and private operators. It is a code of best practices based on the International Civil Aviation Organization’s International Standards and Recommended Practices and is designed to help business aviation operational departments worldwide achieve a high level of safety and professionalism.
An ARG/US safety rating is awarded to those operators who meet the criteria for the ARG/US Platinum Rating and successfully complete a biennial ARG/US on-site safety audit. The ARG/US audit is a true process audit administered by trained and experienced aviation auditing professionals to evaluate the operator against industry best practice standards.
