Our Commitment to Safety
For West Palm Jet Charter, our passengers’ safety is our highest priority. We want to be your lifelong jet charter aviation partner. For this reason, our safety program is driven by a commitment to excellence, honesty, and integrity. We require that any operators we work with adhere to the safety standards set by Wyvern, Argus, or ISBAO.
For passengers, this means that when they charter a private jet with West Palm Jet Charter, they can fly comfortably with the knowledge that they’re flying with the top-rated operators in the industry. We screen thousands of private jet operators and thousands of aircraft so you can rest assured that only the top-tier private jet charter operators and aircraft will be presented to you.
West Palm Jet Charter Safety Guarantee
West Palm Jet Charter uses the services of only the best aviation audit authorities, including Wyvern, Argus, and ISBAO. All approved jet charter operators must have successfully passed an on-site audit conducted by one of these audit organizations. Our Jet Charter Safety Management Team ensures on-going compliance with these standards, and does not allow the release or operation of any flight without a specific compliance check prior to each flight.
West Palm Jet Charter obtains ARGUS and Wyvern safety reports on every private flight we book. We require our private charter aircraft partners to be fully compliant with Part 135 of Title 14 of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations. West Palm Jet Charter verifies the qualifications and experience of all pilots and monitors the maintenance and insurance records on our private aircraft.
West Palm Jet Charter clients can be assured that the service they are provided is superior to that which is offered by other private jet charters because our Wyvern-authorized status gives us access to information that few private flight charter companies have. If your charter company is not Wyvern Authorized and does not display the Wyvern seal, they may not be able to accurately verify the safety of your business jet charter.
Pilot Qualification Requirements
At West Palm Jets we have adopted these qualifications as our minimum standard for pilots:
- 250 hours of PIC time in type
- 1500 hours of total PIC time
- 3000 hours of total flight time
- Current and valid IPC, line check, rout check
- ATP rating
- Type Rating in aircraft
- Current class 1 medical
Wyvern Safety Rating
Wyvern’s rating system has two levels: Registered Operator and Wingman. Any operator willing to provide Wyvern with their records can obtain Registered Operator status. Wyvern doesn’t audit these records, but they’re available for passengers to review. Wyvern’s Wingman rating is the standard we require our pilots and operators to meet. It’s much harder to obtain and only those who can meet Wyvern’s strict audit requirements are awarded Wingman status. Any private jet operator seeking to qualify for and maintain Wingman status must operate under strict safety standards that meet only the highest levels of safety practices.
Wyvern PASS Program
West Palm Jet Charter is proud to be a Wyvern-authorized user. The Wyvern Standard is the most restrictive aviation safety standard in the industry and is stricter than the FAA Part 135 minimums. Our authorization gives us instant access to Wyvern Pilot & Aircraft Safety Survey (PASS) reports on every private charter flight we book. We provide these reports to you before your air charter travel. A Wyvern PASS report is evidence that crucial safety information about the private aircraft charter operator, the aircraft and the flight crew has been checked and verified.
Argus Safety Rating
Argus’ rating system has three levels: Gold, Gold Plus, and Platinum. Gold is Argus’ lowest rating level and only looks for a pilot’s commercial flight certification and past information. Gold Plus status is given to private jet operators who have already obtained Gold status and who either maintain IS-BAO registration or complete an on-site safety audit with Argus.
Argus’ highest rating is Platinum. Any operator wanting to qualify for Platinum status must already qualify for both Gold and Gold Plus status. Platinum operators have to pass Argus’ rigorous Platinum safety inspection and audit and also must have an excellent safety management system and emergency response plan.
IS-BAO Safety Rating
The International Business Aviation Council sets internationally accepted standards called the International Standard for Business Aviation Operations (IS-BAO). Operators must pass a third-party audit, perform internal audits, and meet international best practices in order to receive an IS-BAO Certificate of Registration. Argus’ Gold Plus and Platinum ratings both require the IS-BAO Certificate of Registration.
