Industry-Leading Private Jet Safety Initiatives
Safety Management System
The business aviation Safety Management System (SMS) is a quality management approach to controlling flight-related risks. Aviation SMS programs provide accessible tools for monitoring safety-related processes. Pentastar Aviation has developed its own Safety Management System, which incorporates operational risk profiling with internal evaluation and quality assurance concepts, resulting in a more structured management and continuous improvement of the operational process.
International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations
The International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (ISBAO) was formally introduced by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and made available to the business aviation community at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibit (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland in May 2002. ISBAO was developed by the business aviation industry for the benefit of all corporate and private operators. It is a code of best practices based on the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) International Standards and Recommended Practices and is designed to help business aviation operational departments worldwide achieve a high level of safety and professionalism. Pentastar Aviation Charter, Inc. has qualified for ISBAO registration.
ARG/US Platinum Rating
Platinum Rating - The highest level of ARG/US safety ratings is awarded to those operators who meet the criteria for the ARG/US Gold Rating, and successfully complete a biennial ARG/US on-site safety audit. The ARG/US audit is a true process audit administered by trained and experienced aviation auditing professionals to evaluate the operator against industry best practice standards. A Platinum rating requires a functioning Safety Management System, and clear and workable Emergency Response Plan, and appropriate written standards, implementation, and records for all major aspects of Operations and Maintenance within a flight department or charter company.
Wyvern Recommended Operators comply with The Wyvern Standard™—a leading audit standard developed in cooperation with the most sophisticated and demanding corporate flight departments in the world that far exceeds the regulatory requirements for air charter flight operations and maintenance. Compliance with the standard is demonstrated by successful completion of an on-site safety audit on a two year audit cycle.
