Air Charter Safety
Flex Air Charters Promotes And Enables A Strict Adherence To Air Charter Safety Protocols
Flex Air Charters personally promotes the belief that all air charter operators and brokers have a fiduciary responsibility to the consumer with the recognition of the highest levels of safety in personal and business aviation. We fully vet operators prior to permitting them to fly our clients all around the world, including taking a look at their company insurances, aircraft airworthiness certificates, aircraft inspections and crew background checks as well as their standing with professional air charter safety auditors. This allows us to support the advancement of the highest safety standards available and ensure our clients are as informed as if they were communicating directly with the pilot.
We know that although it is our job as the brokerage agent to facilitate the communication between the client and the operator, that it is also the operator's responsibility to provide operational information, and it is their responsibility to mitigate risk and execute their plan. Which is why we exclusively collaborate with and utilize operators in the top of their field and who have a well-known appreciation and adherence to strict safety standards.
We also provide, at the client’s request, reports and certifications of the operators we use prior to the charter flight booking so that they know, they are in the best and most experienced hands in the industry.
