XOJET Business Growth Fuels Investments

Announces Expansion Of Safety, Training, And Flight Standards Programs

Private jet travel provider XOJET has responded to a 2017 business surge with heightened investments in safety, flight standards and training.  The company recently announced the appointment of talented aviation industry veteran, Daniel Ramirez, formerly at Embraer Aircraft Corporation, as its new director of safety.  Further, driven by a 13% increase in new membership programs under the newly-minted XOJET Access Solutions, which launched earlier this year, the company has doubled the size and reach of its Flight Standards Department and executed the on-demand private aviation industry's first Line Operations Safety Assessment (LOSA). XOJET is the first Part 135 operator to conduct this rigorous program, which strengthens the company's already robust set of safety protocols.  

"We continue to invest in the areas that matter to our clients," said Austin Schell, president of XOJET fleet operations. "The latest investments in safety expertise and capabilities, including the industry-first LOSA milestone, reflect that commitment."

Over a period of seven months, to execute the Line Operations Safety Assessment (LOSA), specially-trained XOJET pilots observed 132 flights, or line observations. At the completion of the observation period, the aggregate results were used to reinforce flight standards and training.

XOJET's expanded Flight Standards Department, launched in tandem with LOSA, now numbers 30 standards captains and eight FAA designated check pilots. The combination of LOSA and the company's expanded training capabilities together act as a quality assurance feedback loop, further bolstering XOJET's capabilities as the premier, on-demand private aviation solutions platform.

"We find that our pilots appreciate the ability to participate in advanced training, and they want to be part of an enterprise that adheres to high standards," noted Schell.

As director of safety, Daniel Ramirez oversees the execution and coordination of the Safety Management System. Previously holding the positions of flight safety manager at Embraer Executive Jets, operational safety officer of North America for Embraer Commercial Jets and corporate air safety officer at Embraer Defense and Security, Ramirez brings to XOJET more than 15 years of aviation experience in flight training and safety, regulatory compliance, and risk management. His outstanding credentials also include advisory positions to the NBAA safety committee, the Flight Safety Foundation Business Aviation Council, FAA's GA-Joint Steering Committee and the ICAO Regional Aviation Safety Group.

"It's an honor to be a part of a company dedicated to the evolution of its own high standard," said Daniel Ramirez, XOJET director of safety. "By employing LOSA into its safety protocols, and creating the Flight Standards Department, XOJET raises the bar. I look forward to working with this team to expand our capabilities as the premier private-aviation solutions provider."
