Elite Air once again passed its ARGUS certification audit in June, maintaining the coveted platinum status awarded to only a handful of operators nationwide.
Elite Air undergoes biannual audits by ARGUS International Inc., which offers a proprietary aircraft charter operator rating and due diligence program. To establish its rating system, ARGUS collects data on charter operators around the world and uses a unique algorithm to score it based on historical safety ratings, current aircraft and pilot back- ground checks, and on-site safety audits.
“We think maintaining a platinum rating from a third-par- ty audit service like ARGUS is extremely important,” Elite Air CEO Gray Gibbs said. “I recommend owners make it a must-have when selecting a management company.”
