"The Illusion of Safety" - Misleading Logos

Executive Fliteways Is Excellence In The Air

In November, 2015 a fatal accident occurred in a Hawker 700 jet charter aircraft where all passengers and crew were killed primarily due to pilot error. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) ruled in their report that contributing factors included "the charter company's casual attitude toward compliance with industry safety standards; its inadequate oversight of the hiring, training and operational proficiency of the flight crew. Additionally, the company's lack of a formal safety program and the [FAA's] insufficient oversight of the company's training program and flight operations were noted'

The charter company responsible for the accident, was believed to have purposely misled the public into thinking it was WYVERN, ARGUS and ACSF certified by using false and/or unearned safety seals in their promotional media. The truth is this company was not audited by any safety organization, but to an unsuspecting traveler's eye, they would appear to be certified by the big three auditing bodies.

The three major safety auditing and governing bodies are the Aviation Research Group / US (ARGUS), WYVERN and the Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF). Though each has its own proprietary safety rating scale they all require an in-person, on-site safety audit of a charter company to confidently assure the public that all FAA Part 135 (or Part 91) safety regulations are complied with and that each charter company conforms to industry best safety standards. Some unscrupulous charter companies may imply they have been audited and certified by simply pasting an applicable auditing company's logo on their advertising and web sites.

Since 1981, Executive Fliteways has provided certified-safe air travel to its diverse and exclusive clientele. Currently, Executive Fliteways has achieved and maintained throughout the years the highest certified ratings of all three auditing companies. We feel it is more important than ever to remind you to look more deeply at the safety certification records for any jet charter company you consider and restricting your choice to a company that have achieved any one or more of the following ratings; ARGUS Platinum rating; The Wyvern Wingman Recommended rating and an ACSF minimum rating level of Three (3) or higher.

Providing well-maintained aircraft flown by highly-trained, experienced pilots is not an inexpensive proposition. As in most things in life, the cheapest option is not always the best, or safest, option. When selecting a charter company to meet your future travel needs, make sure that safety has not been compromised in order to offer the lowest pricing option!

Our Private Jet Aircraft Fleet

Light Jets: 8 Passengers

A light jet is a category of small jets seating anywhere from 4 to 8 people (depending on configuration) and often with a maximum takeoff weight of under 10,000 pounds. Light jets are considered the lightest business jets and are approved for single pilot operation. Light jets are ideal for shorter trips for business meetings or family getaways.

Midsized Jets: 10 Passengers

Midsize jets – also referred to as mid-size jets, are great for long distance travel such as transcontinental flights or trips requiring larger passenger capacity (depending on configuration). Unlike a light jet rental, Mid-size private jets are incredibly versatile private aircraft, combining the comfort and space of larger personal planes, with the speed and agility of small private jets. Private jet speeds help the aircraft travel a range of over 5,000 nautical miles and typically seats 7 to 10 passengers.

Super Mids: 16 Passengers

Super mid-sized jets are designed to comfortably accommodate from 8 to 16 passengers (depending on configuration) - with substantial baggage space. Super mids can be chartered for international, non-stop transcontinental or mid-range travel with an average flight range of up to 9 hours of flight time - or 4,500 miles - in optimum conditions.

Large Jets: 16 Passengers

Large cabin jets have a cabin height of over six feet. Cabin width varies from nearly seven to over eight feet, while cabin length can range from 28 feet to nearly 50 feet. With endurance of 8 to 10 hours, many large cabin jets - like the Falcon 900 - are also designed for longer range flights such as New York to Paris. Large cabin jet cabin amenities can include WiFi, private lavatory, PlayStation video games, satellite phone, cabin attendant and a full galley.

Turbo Props: 10 Passengers

What sets turbo props apart is their versatility. Unlike other private jets, planes with a turbo prop engine don’t need a full runway for landing and take off; a short grass airstrip is more than enough. Which makes them perfect for taking the route less traveled. Made for short to medium journeys, turbo prop planes can land on grass airstrips and short runways. Turboprops are an economical way to fly, with room for eight to ten passengers.

Helicopters: 13 Passengers

While there are many reasons to take a chartered helicopter flight - the fact that for most it is a once in a lifetime experience is probably the most prominent. Helicopter flight in itself is an adventure that most people find thrilling. Making use of helicopter flights is also a great way to mark a special occasion and create new memories that will make a special day even more special.
