Research the Safety Record of the Jet Charter Company

When choosing a private jet charter, it is essential to research and ensure that the company you are considering has a good safety record.  The FAA is the governing body responsible for certifying private jet charters, so make sure to look for their seal of approval. Additionally, it is a good idea to read online reviews from past customers to get an idea of the company’s credentials.  At JetLevel, we always recommend asking the company about its safety policies and procedures as well. Ensure that the company has a comprehensive plan for emergencies.  By taking these precautions, you can be sure you are flying with a safe and reputable company.

Ensure the private jet charter company is FAA certified, holds a third-party safety audit certification like ARGUS or Wyvern, and inquire about their safety protocols and pilot qualifications.

Ask about the Crew

When choosing the safest private jet charter for your needs, it can be helpful to ask about the crew who will be flying the plane. Make sure the crew is thoroughly experienced and has been trained in safety procedures. The last thing you want is your flight to be disrupted by an inexperienced crew member. The crew plays a very important role in the success of your air travel. They are responsible for ensuring your flight goes smoothly and safely. If there is an emergency, they are also the ones who will help keep you safe, so they must be adequately prepared. Always ask about the crew’s experience and training before booking your flight. This will help ensure your flight is safe and enjoyable.

Ask about the operator’s safety record, specific aircraft maintenance procedures, pilot experience, and if they have insurance coverage. Also, verify if they comply with FAA regulations and hold any additional safety certifications.

Find Out about the Aircraft

Another important factor in the safety of your jet charter flight is the aircraft itself. Ask the charter company about the history of the aircraft and how often it is inspected. You want to be reassured that the aircraft is in good condition and receives routine maintenance.  If you have any concerns, ask the charter company to provide you with a safety report. This report will outline any safety issues identified with the aircraft and how they were addressed. It is essential to choose a private jet that is safe and reliable. The good news is that a reputable broker, like JetLevel Aviation, will help you make this selection, so you don’t have to do it alone! Related: The Best Private Jet Brands in the Industry

Look into the charter’s operational history for any incidents or violations, check third-party safety audit certifications, and review pilot training and experience levels. Prioritize operators with transparent safety measures and a strong commitment to maintaining high safety standards.

Check for Insurance Coverage

When chartering a private jet, it is essential to check that the provider has adequate insurance coverage. This will ensure that you and your passengers are protected in an accident or emergency. JetLevel Aviation requires all of its approved vendors to maintain at least $25 million in liability insurance on turbo-prop aircraft and $50 million and liability insurance on light and mid-size jets, and $100 million on all other private aircraft like super mids, heavy, and BBJ. JetLevel also requires every flight to be flown with 2 pilots. This demonstrates their commitment to safety and provides peace of mind for passengers. By following these tips, you can ensure that you’re flying with a safe and reputable company that puts safety first.
