We are known in the industry for our higher-than-FAA-standard safety requirements. And now, with our new ARG/US Broker Certification we have additional proof of our commitment to that highest benchmark of safety. We are very proud to be the recipient of ARG/US' first broker certification.
Savannah, GA (PRWEB) January 31, 2008
JETS.com, the award winning private jet membership company, today announced that it had been named the first ARG/US Certified Broker by Aviation Research Group, U.S., Inc. (ARG/US), the highly respected third-party safety auditor for the aviation industry. The announcement was made from the floor of the NBAA Schedulers and Dispatchers Conference currently in session at the Savannah Convention Center.
ARG/US, well-known in the general aviation industry for its third-party safety audits of air operators, will now also offer certification for charter brokers. The new ARG/US Certified Broker designation will provide confirmation that a charter broker is adhering to ARG/US' high standards of safety.
"Any broker can say that they use ARG/US, but not every broker adheres to our very high standards of aviation safety," said Joe Moeggenberg, ARG/US President. "Our new Broker Certification endorsement will ensure that all of a charter broker's retail trips are scheduled with an operator holding an ARG/US Gold, Gold+ or Platinum rating. ARG/US Certified Brokers additionally execute a TripCHEQ on every flight. Jets.com, with its steadfast commitment to safety, is an excellent example of what we hope all ARG/US Certified Brokers will be."
ARG/US and JETS.com have a long standing relationship based on promoting the importance of aviation safety and standards. Both companies are among the most highly-esteemed organizations in the general aviation industry and make certain that for every client trip, all of the jets, pilots, and crews they work with maintain current and impeccable training, certifications, op-specs, and safety standards.
"Safety is our priority and always has been," said Nate McKelvey CEO of Jets.com. "We are known in the industry for our higher-than-FAA-standard safety requirements. And now, with our new ARG/US Broker Certification we have additional proof of our commitment to that highest benchmark of safety. We are very proud to be the recipient of ARG/US' first broker certification."
