Three safety stamps for young Planet 9
Planet 9 co-founder Matt Walter says that being accredited by Wyvern, ARGUS and and IS-BAO will give confidence to brokers and passengers. The company frequents both coasts of the US as well as EMEA.
Customers can step on board a Planet 9 aircraft with confidence.

Van Nuys, California-based Planet Nine Private Air has earned the highest-ranked ARGUS Platinum safety certification. Independently awarded, ARGUS ratings are recognised as accurate and detailed third-party due diligence systems for Part 135 charter operators, buyers and passengers.

Planet 9 also achieved IS-BAO Stage I last month, satisfying IBAC that it is delivering high operational standards in all aspects of its business. The less than one-year-old company has also achieved Wyvern Wingman status.

“We are very pleased to be adding to our accreditations with ARGUS Platinum status and IS-BAO Stage I rating,” comments co-founder Matt Walter. “These are very important recognitions, giving confidence to our charter brokers and passengers. Our business jets are based in the USA, positioned out of Van Nuys, California and New York's Teterboro airport, but we are regularly back and forth to Europe, Russia and the Middle East.”

Planet 9 operates five Dassault Falcon 7Xs, plus a Gulfstream G550, Gulfstream G650 and Bombardier Global 5000 available for third party charter for private owners through its management division. It flies corporations, family offices and UHNWs from the West and East Coasts of the USA to destinations including Europe, Russia and the Middle East.
