Safety and security are essential traveling companions. From the cockpit to the control and data centers and every point in between, deliberate and specific measures have been put in place to provide you the highest levels of confidence and peace of mind while traveling with us. Long-range Red Label aircraft have an aviation engineer aboard, providing additional comfort on international journeys.
Each piece designed for peace of mind
With exceptional service comes the certainty that every person and every part of your experience is working in concert for your satisfaction and safety. From our pilots and maintenance centers to our account managers and Flexjet private terminals, every aspect of the travel experience reinforces our care and expertise.
Trained for safety and success
As some of the most rigorously trained experts in the industry, our pilots exceed the highest levels of professionalism, competency, proficiency and expertise required by the Federal Aviation Regulations, Part 135. Every pilot is type-rated in their assigned jet and trained to perform safely in every possible terrain, environment and situation. Evaluated according to Captain’s standards every six months, our pilots and first officers train from both cockpit seats, and have extensive knowledge of first aid, CPR and AED usage.
To ensure performance and safety meet our exceedingly high standards, our pilots are taught by in-house flight instructors in our dedicated training department. Each flight instructor is line qualified in his or her assigned aircraft, meaning they rotate from flight training to line flying every other month. This process leverages the highest level of “real world” operating experience and cultivates a culture of safety among our pilots.
With the addition of our unique training oversight program, we can effectively monitor and maintain our standard of safety. Recommended by the FAA, these programs are designed to strengthen and reinforce safety training for pilots. From Telluride to Tokyo, our pilots and crew are fully equipped to meet your private aviation needs.
Minimum Pilot Qualifications:
- 2,500 hours of total time fixed wing
- 500 hours of turbine time
- 500 hours of multi-engine time

Technologically Advanced Operational Center
We continuously monitor and coordinate our flights every moment of every day in our state-of-the-art Operations Control Center (OCC). Similar in function and design to NASA’s Mission Control Center, the OCC provides real-time data concerning everything from flight schedules and aircraft availability to weather and flight tracking.
This data allows us to maintain the highest level of operational safety, and to maximize our ability to fulfill owner trip requests. And should weather or other event cause travel plans to change, our OCC allows us to proactively plan for a safe and satisfactory journey.

The Highest Standard of Safety
We are proud to maintain one of the most rigorous safety standards in the industry. As the first fractional jet ownership program to meet the increasingly strict Industry Audit Standard of the Air Charter Safety Foundation, we successfully met perhaps the toughest standard for Part 135. We’ve also achieved Platinum Rating within the ARG/US Safety Rating. The Platinum Rating is the highest level of the ARG/US Ratings and requires a well-developed Safety Management System, a clear and workable Emergency Response Plan, effective policies and procedures, and documented records for all major aspects of operations and maintenance within a flight department or charter company.
All of the aircraft we manage are expertly maintained. Only Flexjet has earned the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) coveted Diamond Award of Excellence for 21 consecutive years. The Diamond Award is the FAA’s highest honor for maintenance training and is a testament to the constant and exceedingly high level of discipline and commitment to excellence exhibited by each member of our team.
