Private Air Charter Safety Standards

At Airvel, your safety and security is paramount and we will never waiver from our commitment to the most stringent standards of private air charter safety.

That’s why we only partner with trusted part 135 operators who meet our strict requirements for risk management and passenger safety best practices. With the help of industry-leading third-party auditors, we screen operators, aircraft and pilots using a variety of metrics to ensure they meet and exceed our standards.


FAA, Wyvern, IS-BAO and Argus

The Federal Aviation Administration and two leading private organizations specialize in supporting the aviation ecosystem with a variety of safety solutions, services and certifications designed to support the security of key stakeholders.

As part of our flight management process, we partner with Wyvern and Argus to verify critical information about part 135 operators including:

  • Adherence to applicable FAA regulations and certifications
  • In-depth historical safety analyses
  • Pilot background checks, experience and training certifications
  • The results of rigorous on-site audits of their fleet
  • Liability insurance coverage
  • Emergency response planning and training
  • Flight department training and certifications
  • Maintenance records

Fly Confidently with Airvel

As part of our commitment to empowering you with the information to need to book flights with confidence, you can view Argus and Wyvern rating information as part of the flight details information during the shopping process. Plus, after your flight is confirmed by the operator, you can view information about your specific pilots on your trip management page. (This information is typically available 48 hours prior to your departure.)

It’s important to note that part 135 operators are not required by the Federal Aviation Administration to undergo audits by Wyvern or Argus, it is up to the operator to participate. Though, all part 135 operators must adhere to the stringent requirements mandated by the FAA to earn certification and maintain operations. For operators who have been vetted by the Wyvern and Argus organizations, we can make that detailed available to you upon request.

Plus, as part of our commitment to safety, Airvel also requires that each operator assigns two pilots to each and every flight for added security.
