(PRWEB) April 07, 2013
Angel MedFlight and its parent company Aviation West Charters are proud to announce they have received two major honors recognizing their commitment to safety: an ARGUS Platinum Operator Rating and a Stage 1 IS-BAO registration.
The Platinum Operator Rating is the highest level of safety rating Aviation Research Group/US awards to private aviation companies.
On Thursday, Aviation West Charters was also informed that it had achieved Stage 1 registration from the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations.
The honors are the result of a three-day audit performed at the Angel MedFlight and Aviation West Charters headquarters last February in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Aviation West Charters had previously held Gold level status, assigned to operators who meet or exceed the established ARGUS standards for safety history and crew experience.
IS-BAO was developed by the aviation industry and is a code of best practices designed to help flight departments worldwide achieve a high level of safety and professionalism.
