ARGUS Platinum Rating
Swift Aircraft Management has earned an ARGUS Platinum Rating, the highest and most prestigious ARGUS safety rating, demonstrating SAM’s dedication and ongoing commitment to safety.
The ARG/US Trip CHEQ (Charter Evaluation and Qualification) program is the world’s most prestigious third-party vetting system for charter operators, buyers and passengers. Aviation leaders rely on ARG/US for accurate, real-time data and assurance. It provides charter customers with a comprehensive analysis of a company’s credentials specific to a trip and assures that your flight has not been brokered to another operator without your knowledge. ARG/US provides you with a charter company’s safety score and the pilots’ experience in this airplane type, certification and type ratings, the pilots’ record of accidents, incidents and enforcement actions.
To award a Platinum Rating, aviation services company ARGUS International Inc. conducts comprehensive research on a company’s fleet operations. It compiles historical safety records, performs aircraft and pilot background checks, and administers an on-site safety audit to determine whether an operator meets or exceeds the ARGUS Platinum standard.
The Platinum Rating is awarded when an operator meets all rating requirements and within the preceding 24 months has passed an ARGUS audit to its rigorous standards. It is awarded only to those air charter operators who have demonstrated successful implementation of a viable Safety Management System and industry best safety practices relative to their operations and maintenance.
