At Charter Flight Group, safety is at the heart of our charter plane service. Safety is not just one box we tick off before your flight. In fact, safety means ticking off a whole list of boxes to ensure your private jet charter meets each and every safety standard.
From inspecting every inch of the aircraft before you take off to making sure your pilot is well trained and certified, we are committed to the highest private jet safety regulations.
We handpick our private jet charters, so we know you are flying with a quality aircraft. Every aircraft is ARG/US certified and WYVERN authorized. These ratings are regarded as the strictest safety standards in the industry. Each charter also complies with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 135 of Title 14.
Not only do we require safety reports for every charter, but we also monitor aircraft maintenance and insurance records. No charter takes off without a full safety inspection from top to bottom. We even let you compare private jets in our fleet and pick the one that suits your own air charter safety standards and preferences.
The aircraft is only half of private jet charter safety. The pilot is the other half. We permit only the most qualified pilots to operate your jet charter. Each pilot has WYVERN approval and an FAA-issued commercial pilot license. They all undergo strict training and background checks. And every pilot meets all training and flight-hour requirements. To top it off, our trusted pilots know their aircraft like the back of their hand and are confident handling it as they fly in the same exact jets each and every day.

Some of the factors that affect the safety of private aircraft charters are:
The FAA regulates and controls the operation of all aviation in the United States -commercial, private and chartered. Before an aircraft or private aircraft charter operator is permitted to fly the general public as paying passengers, they must undergo a lengthy investigation and certification process. In the case of private charter aircraft, the governing regulations are found in FAR Part 135 [insert FAA link; see below and apply to aircraft and equipment, flight operations and limitations, pilot and crew member qualifications, maintenance, training and record keeping. In some cases, FAR Part 135 regulations are more stringent than Part 125 which governs large commercial aircraft. Charter Flight Group mandates that all aircraft and private charter flight operators meet these regulations and maintain up-to-date certification.
The FAA also imposes rigorous qualifications on pilots of private charter aircraft. They must have spotless police records, be medically certified by an FAA examiner, and meet minimum training and flight-hour requirements.
To pilot anything other than their own personal aircraft, pilots must have a commercial pilot’s license/ certificate issued by the FAA and must meet strict training and flight time requirements. Before a non-military pilot qualifies to carry passengers, he/she must have four to six years of flight-time and testing. The highest-rated charter pilots in the U.S. are ATP-rated, which means they possess an Airline Transport Pilot certificate and are authorized to carry more than 9 passengers aboard scheduled and private charter aircraft with a maximum gross weight exceeding 12,500 pounds. Private charter aircraft pilots must meet many of the same requirements as commercial airline pilots.
With more than 30 years in the industry. Charter Flight Group is dedicated to supplying clients with professionally maintained private charter aircraft and the finest, most highly trained flight crews. To augment the safety of our private aircraft charters, Charter Flight Group utilizes some of the best third-party safety and auditing agencies in the aviation industry.
Safety is essential to Charter Flight Group and we are 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 WYVERN authorization gives us instant access to WYVERN Pilot & Aircraft Safety Survey (PASS) reports on every private charter flight we book. We provide the reports to you before your air charter travel. And the flight must pass! 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. [Note: Maybe you could link them to an image of an actual PASS report?]
Since 1991, Wyvern Consulting Ltd. has performed safety audits on charter operators around the globe. The actual on-site audits last two to three days and scrutinize the aircraft and pilots.
Because WYVERN audits are so thorough, not one of the 5 fatal accidents or 22 fatalities on FAA Part 135 turbine charter aircraft between August 2005 and August 2010 occurred on a WYVERN-compliant flight. www.wyvernltd.com
Charter Flight Group clients can be assured they are receiving a superior service than they may get with others 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.
Another example of Charter Flight Group’s dedication to maximum safety is our subscription to the TripCHEQ program provided by Aviation Research Group/U.S. (ARG/US). ARG/US performs safety audits and ratings on charter operators around the world through the TripCHEQ program. Charter Flight Group’s access to the ARG/US system allows us to perform due diligence on a flight-by-flight basis to ensure the safety of your private flights.
ARG/US assigns red, yellow or green ratings, Charter Flight Group will always recommend the green rating as the highest standard for your private aircraft charter.
The ARG/US audit criterion includes:
