Angel Medflight Receives Highest Safety Rating

Angel MedFlight and its parent company Aviation West Charters continue to reach new heights. We are extremely proud to announce we have received two majors honors recognizing our commitment to safety: an ARGUS Platinum Operator Rating and a Stage 1 IS-BAO registration.

The Platinum Operating Rating is the highest level of safety rating that Aviation Research Group/US (ARGUS) awards to private aviation companies.

Aviation West Charters had previously held Gold level status, assigned to operators who meet or exceed the established ARGUS standards for safety history and crew experience.

To achieve the Platinum rating Aviation West Charters had to meet all Gold rating requirements and then pass an in-depth audit. The audit took three days to complete.

On the heels of the ARGUS Platinum rating, Aviation West Charters was also informed Thursday that it has achieved Stage 1 registration from the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO).

Aviation West Charters Safety Officer Wendy Whitaker says the ARGUS and IS-BAO honors show that "as a company, we invest a lot of time and energy into being a proactive operator." Whitaker says, "our Safety Management System (SMS) is in place, it's effective, it's happening now and is not just on paper. We are actually doing what we say we are doing and we have documentation to prove it."

She says the safety program is ingrained into the culture of our company.

According to ARGUS, it developed a rating system known as the CHEQ report, which stands for Charter Evaluation and Qualification. The CHEQ system has three major components: Historical Safety Ratings, Current Aircraft and Pilot Data, and On-Site Safety Audits. ARGUS says its program "is the most accurate and detailed third-party due diligence system for charter operators, buyers and passengers around the world."

International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) Director General Kurt H. Edwards congratulated AWC for its IS-BAO registration saying in a letter, "this is a significant accomplishment of which your organization can be extremely proud." Edwards says the Aviation West Charters flight department management and personnel "invested considerable time and personal effort to develop and implement this world-class business aviation code of practice."

ARGUS International, Inc., was founded in 1995 and is a specialized aviation services company with global expertise. It is the leading audit organization for aircraft operators around the world.

IS-BAO was developed by the aviation industry and is a code of best practices designed to help flight departments worldwide achieve a high level of safety and professionalism.

As a leader and innovator in air ambulance service, Angel MedFlight is extremely proud to have received these two honors. They emphasize that by choosing Angel MedFlight you can always feel confident that the Angel MedFlight jet transporting your patient or loved one is maintained with only the highest safety standards in mind.
