Fewer than 1% of all charter operations in the U.S. have earned the very highest safety accreditations that Reynolds Jet has attained. This assures our customers, their passengers and their aircraft, are in very safe hands at all times.
IS-BAO Stage III
IS-BAO – International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations – is a set of performance-based and process-oriented standards, that is recognized as the international standard of operational excellence. IS-BAO is to the aviation industry what ISO-9000 quality management standards is to the manufacturing industry. This code of best practices is based on Safety Management Systems (SMS) principles of policy and procedures, risk management, safety assurance and safety promotion.
There are three levels progressive within the IS-BAO process. Reynolds Jet attained Stage III, which is the final and highest level. This affirms our SMS is supported by continuous improvement processes that foster a sustainable and proactive safety culture throughout the company.
ARGUS Platinum Safety Rating
The highest rating that can be achieved with ARGUS, recognized as the ultimate validation of operational excellence and flight safety best practices.
As of April 2018, only 135 charter operators – worldwide – hold the ARGUS Platinum safety rating.
Safety Management System (SMS)
Reynolds Jet has an integrated Safety Management System, managed by our Safety Officer. The formal SMS is a proactive approach to safety, providing measures to identify and mitigate potential safety risk. Our dedicated Safety Officer exists outside of the organizational chart and is given non-retribution reporting authority directly to our ownership. We have an established Safety Management System and Emergency Response Plan that may be customized to dovetail with your systems, if applicable.
Flight Risk Assessment
Our pilots and dispatch office complete a Flight Risk Assessment worksheet before every flight. These sheets are tabulated in order to ensure that ALL factors are weighed (not just weather, for instance) prior to a flight being dispatched. We consider every factor imaginable in order to determine that every flight is safe and secure.
Wyvern Registered Operator
Adding further commitment to safety and our dedication in providing excellent service, we are also a Wyvern Approved Operator. Registered operators receive a globally-recognized affirmation that demonstrates a daily commitment to safety and industry best practices. We use the Wyvern’s Pilot and Aircraft Safety Survey (PASS) program on every flight. This due diligence report provides charter customers with a comprehensive view of information regarding the operator, pilots and the aircraft.
