HOUSTON, Texas, 29 Oct. 2014. American Jet International (AJI), powered by Million Air Houston (HOU), has completed a two-day audit of its Part 135 Air Carrier Operations conducted by the Aviation Research Group/US (ARG/US).
ARG/US officials renewed Million Air’s Platinum Safety Rating, which is the highest safety rating issued to Part 135 operators by an outside auditing firm.
The audit reviewed all American Jet International’s manuals, regulatory compliance, policies, procedures, SMS Safety Management System, and overall safety within the organization. The audit encompasses flight operations, maintenance, and fueling operations. Based on the data obtained, ARG/US rates operators from none, silver, gold, gold plus, or Platinum.
ARG/US is an objective, non-intrusive and fact-based auditor of Part 135 charter operators and is one of the most respected in the aviation industry, officials say. The ARG/US audit is a true "Process" and "Systems" audit that verifies that the flight operation is managed, organized, and run consistent with industry best practices and reflects a clear commitment to safety.
“Most aircraft owners, card members and charter flyers expect safety to be a standard practice,” says Vice President of Business Development Anthony Ethridge. “At American Jet International, dba Million Air Charter, 100% is not the ceiling for safety standards. We strive to go above and beyond what others settle for and as one of less than 2% of the operators in the country that have achieved the ARG/US and ISBAO safety rating we believe we are setting the standard.”
AJI, rated Platinum by ARG/US (Aviation Research Group/US), is a member of the Wyvern Wingman program and recipient of the Certificate of Excellence “Diamond Award” from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The company is up for renewal of the ARGUS in May of 2015.
