Flexjet Receives FAA Diamond Award For Excellence In Aircraft Maintenance

Earns ARG/US Platinum Safety Rating

The FAA has presented a Diamond Award of Excellence for Aviation Maintenance Technician Training for 2018 to Flexjet. This marks the 20th consecutive year that Flexjet has been honored with the prestigious Diamond Award, more than any other private jet travel provider.

“Safety is Flexjet’s utmost priority, and achieving it starts on the ground, before an aircraft ever takes off, with aircraft that are maintained at the highest possible level to ensure maximum safety and performance,” said Flexjet Chief Executive Officer Michael Silvestro. “Our aircraft maintenance team members have extraordinary skill and expertise, and they sustain this excellence through constant training. Their hard work and dedication to their craft is reflected in this award, which honors their commitment to our Owners and flight crews.”

Established in 1991, the FAA Diamond Award is the premier level of recognition within the William (Bill) O’Brien Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards Program. Qualifying for the award requires that all of Flexjet’s maintenance technicians participate in specialized, continuous training in aviation safety, technical knowledge, aircraft systems, aviation regulations and FAA rules over a 12-month period at levels that surpass not only FAA requirements but also industry standards. The criteria for the Diamond Award have become increasingly stringent, making Flexjet’s streak of 20 consecutive awards remarkable.

Flexjet is known for its high standards in aviation maintenance, which it supports by providing advanced facilities, comprehensive training and support and a culture focused on ensuring that all aircraft meet the highest benchmarks for care and upkeep. Teams of technicians cooperate to maintain every aircraft to the company’s exacting specifications, and pride themselves on their skill and ability to exceed all standards.

This commitment to aircraft maintenance and safety is reflected in the awards and certifications Flexjet continues to receive. Flexjet has again earned the Aviation Research Group/US (ARG/US) Platinum Safety Rating. One of the most prestigious aviation safety ratings in the United States, the biennial Platinum rating has now been earned by Flexjet for six consecutive two-year periods since 2008. The ARG/US rating is the result of independent assessments and a multiday, onsite audit that measures companies against the aviation industry’s best practices for safety.

Flexjet is also IS-BAO compliant at level 2, based upon a global, voluntary code of best practices with a safety management system as its basis. IS-BAO conforms with the standards and practices of the International Civil Aviation Organization, making compliance the equivalent of achieving an international standard of safety excellence.

In addition, Flexjet was the first fractional jet ownership program to meet the exacting Industry Audit Standard of the Air Charter Safety Foundation, perhaps the toughest standard for Part 135. Flexjet also is an active participant in the FAA’s innovative Part 5 Safety Management System.
