Safety Sheet

AOC (AIR OPERATOR CERTIFICATE)

In order to operate Wolf Executive Jets charter flights, aircraft operators have to complete a thorough process, by law, to satisfy the relevant country's national aviation authority that they are competent to undertake safe commercial operation of aircraft. If this set of stringent requirements is met, an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) will be granted. This is alternatively known as an Air Carrier Operating Certificate in the USA. The requirements for an AOC do vary from country to country, but generally includes an audit of areas such as company safety policy; management and organizational competence; crew training; aircraft maintenance; aircraft loading; flight planning; and fuel planning. It normally takes an operator or airline over 2 years to be issued with an AOC. It is a vigorous process and many new start-ups fail to be granted this license to fly passengers. Wolf Executive Jets only works with approved operators who have a current AOC certification.

ARGUS & WYVERN SAFETY RATINGS

Aircraft operators in the USA and parts of Europe can also be audited for safety by independent aviation-auditing companies. These are optional accreditations which allow an aircraft operator to hold and promote a rating, which indicates their commitment to safety. The leading industry auditors are ARGUS and Wyvern. ARGUS (which stands for the Aviation Research Group US) provides a system of evaluating charter operators called CHEQ (Charter Evaluation and Qualification) that combines the safety history of a charter operator, aircraft and crew, and compares against relative industry benchmarks. ARGUS gives four rating tiers to operators: Does Not Qualify, Gold, Gold Plus and Platinum. Wyvern provides its PASS (Pilot & Aircraft Safety Survey) program, using data points including pilot and maintenance personnel training; crew currency; and background checks to give either a ‘Registered’ (entry-level) or ‘Wingman’ (advanced) standard to operators.
