Pentastar Aviation Charter has successfully renewed its ARGUS Platinum Rating. This achievement places it in the top five per cent of over 1,000 US-based charter operators. It is the highest level in the ARGUS audit standard and is awarded only to those air charter operators who have demonstrated successful implementation of industry best safety practices regarding their operations and maintenance. Pentastar's operations have been Platinum rated since 2006.
“The safety of our customers and employees remains our top priority,” says Greg Schmidt, president and CEO of Pentastar. “As one of the premier charter operators in the industry, we are committed to employing safety practices that go above and beyond FAA and international regulatory standards, are certified and continuously monitored and improved upon. Renewal of our Platinum rating reflects that commitment.”
“This Platinum rating demonstrates Pentastar's continued commitment to safety and ongoing quality improvement in all areas of the organisation,” adds Joe Moeggenberg, CEO of ARGUS. “Interested parties can verify Pentastar's Platinum rating status at any time via the CHEQ System.”
In addition to the ARGUS Platinum rating, Pentastar Aviation Charter is a registered Stage II IS-BAO operator, Wyvern registered and a member of the Air Charter Safety Foundation and is involved in its voluntary Aviation Safety Action Program.
