We take your safety seriously
Fair Wind is ARG/US Platinum rated, Wyvern recommended, and IS-BAO registered
If you are chartering an aircraft, how can you be sure that the operator meets your standards? ARG/US is a leading, independent audit organization that continuously reviews and monitors the safety record of any US based charter operator. Subscribers can download a complete safety report and validate charter flights’ historical safety standings within seconds. Responding to an industry wide need for objective, non-intrusive, and fact-based safety analysis for part 135 charter operators, ARG/US has developed a new rating system. Fair Wind Air Charter continuously updates its aircraft and crew information within the ARG/US system. Additionally, Fair Wind provides this safety service to any brokered flights for its passengers at no additional charge. Make sure you get what you deserve for your next flight – quality, reliability, safety, and regulatory compliance. Wyvern is an independent aviation audit firm owned by CharterX. The Wyvern standard puts forth very stringent audit, qualification, and industry best practice standards that require an air carrier’s continuous focus and dedication. Fair Wind has attained the Wyvern recommendation testifying to our comittment to safety. Wyvern status is renewed every 24 months by completion of a 2-day audit by professional and experienced aviation industry auditors. The International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) has developed the International Standard – Business Aircraft Operators (IS-BAO). This standard has been recognized by the Federal Aviation Administration to meet the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) safety management system requirement. Although not yet required within the United States, any aircraft flying in ICAO territories is now required to maintain an active Safety Management System (SMS). Completion of the IS-BAO audit and registration process is a demanding and daunting task requiring dedication and a sincere comittment to building a corporate structure that promulgates a solid safety effort. Fair Wind completed the IS-BAO registration process in October 2010. From the several thousand on-demand air carriers in the United States, Fair Wind Air Charter has successfully obtained ARG/US Platinum Status, as well as the recommendation of Wyvern, Ltd., in addition to the IS-BAO registration. Last, and certainly not least, we are also audited by NetJets, a Berkshire Hathaway Company, through their subsidiary Executive Jet Management. We are a recognized and approved vendor for the NetJets fractional ownership provider. You are in safe hands when flying with Fair Wind Air Charter!
