At Executive Fliteways we know what matters to our clients - time, productivity, security, privacy and, above all, flight safety. Our company culture is committed to maintaining and enhancing flight safety. To this end we have a formalized Safety Management System (SMS) that allows any employee to report and suggest changes to our operations that will provide a safer experience to our passengers and staff.
Executive Fliteways is a member of the Wyvern Network of Charter Operators and has successfully completed numerous independent aviation audits conducted by Wyvern, ARG/US, IS-BAO and the Air Charter Safety Foundation. Our aircraft, pilots and mechanics have to meet rigorous criteria in order for the company to maintain its accreditations.
Our crew & maintenance undergo extensive training
Safety has always been the 'sine qua non' at Executive Fliteways. All flight crew members and maintenance personnel undergo extensive initial and recurrent aircraft training at the state-of-the-art Simuflite and Bombardier facilities in Dallas, Texas. In addition, Executive Fliteways has a comprehensive in-house training program that includes computerized learning programs, as well as traditional student/teacher sessions.
In 2004, Executive Fliteways became only the second Part 135 company in the country to receive IS-BAO certification, affirming that our operational policies and procedures meet or exceed the very high standards set by the International Business Aircraft Council (IBAC). That same year, our company received further distinction when it was selected as the Netjets 'Charter Vendor Of The Year'.
In addition, we are IS/BAO, ARG-US Platinum and Wyvern certified.
The Executive Fliteways' maintenance facility operates 24 hours everyday, minimizing aircraft downtime and ensuring the impeccable condition of our fleet. With our highly trained technicians, state-of-the-art equipment and extensive parts inventory, we are prepared and qualified to handle everything from routine maintenance to major inspections.
Chartering a private jet also gives you direct access and communication with our pilots. Whether you want to know the end-destination ETA, the local weather forecast or you just want to check if your catering is ready to be served - your dedicated crew is at your service.
AIR CHARTER SAFETY FOUNDATION
In 2008, Executive Fliteways was selected as a founding member of the Air Charter Safety Foundation. This group is charged by the FAA to develop and institute safety management systems (SMS) throughout the charter industry. Executive Fliteways is only the second commercial aircraft operator in the U.S. to receive certification of its safety management system. Most recently, Executive Fliteways earned the distinction of becoming the first company to achieve Level Four certification of its SMS program.
HIGHEST LEVELS OF SAFETY
In addition to the ACSF certification, Executive Fliteways has been on the Wyvern Consulting, LTD “recommended” list for over ten years and was only the second charter company to receive the coveted International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) certificate and is currently at Level III. Several Fortune 100 companies also conduct an annual audit of our operation to ensure that their executives only fly on aircraft that meet the highest levels of safety.
EFI IS COMMITTED TO SAFETY CULTURE
What is safety culture? It is the way safety is perceived, valued and prioritized in an organization. It reflects the real commitment to safety at all levels in the organization. It has also been described as "how an organization behaves when no one is watching". Safety culture is not something you get or buy; it is something an organization acquires as a product of the combined effects of organizational culture, professional culture and often, national culture.
