ARGUS releases new safety rating as trio become Platinum Elite
Jet Linx has become the first operator to achieve ARGUS's Platinum Elite safety ranking. The continuous monitoring evaluation system provides the operator and the customer with near real-time safety analysis.

ARGUS International is expanding its commitment to the highest safety standards as it launches Platinum Elite, aviation's first continuous monitoring audit programme. Jet Linx is the first operator to achieve the new status, but Alerion Aviation, a Part 135 with a presence in California, Florida and the New York area, and Chicago Executive airport based N-Jet have also joined Platinum Elite.

Platinum Elite builds on the ARGUS Platinum rating by refining how it integrates with operators. After building an active monitoring system and creating a performance monitoring platform, it can now assure standards are continuously met and changes to operations are actively managed.

“Since our initial partnership with ARGUS in 2007 as one of the first private aviation operators to receive an ARGUS Platinum rating, we have been steadfast in our commitment to elevate safety in our industry,” says Jamie Walker, president and CEO of Jet Linx Aviation. “Now, as the first operator to receive Platinum Elite status, we are excited to usher in a new standard of safety in private aviation and in transparency to the private aviation consumer.”

"For Alerion, attaining Platinum Elite status represents not just a level of operations achieved for the past 12 years, but true validation of continuous adherence to the highest standards by our operation," says Suran Wijayawardana, COO of Alerion Aviation. "Our clients and our employees can now have validation of our continuous commitment to operating to the highest levels of safety and operational processes, not just once every two years, but continually."

The three operators, and those that qualify going forward, will remain on the ARGUS CHEQ Registry. Their qualifications will be accessible through ARGUS TripCHEQ prior to each flight.
