Magellan Jets has issued a white paper on what you should know about private aviation safety

Boston-based jet card and on-demand charter broker Magellan Jets has added to its library of educational white papers for private jet fliers with a white paper titled, “How Safe Is Your Private Aviation Company?”

Magellan’s report notes when it comes to providing safe private jet flights, “You can bet that every operator out there will make this same claim. But are they all the same? How can you ensure that a private aviation operator is walking the walk when it comes to safety?”

Private Jet Safety

The private aviation safety document looks at the four pillars of safety as outlined by ICAO, the International Civil Aviation Organization.

  • Safety Policy and Objectives
  • Risk Management
  • Safety Assurance
  • Safety Promotion

“Consistency in decision-making, based on core values, is imperative to maintaining a safe track record,” says Ryan D. Foss, director of flight support for Magellan Jets.

Magellan’s New Jet Card Program

Magellan was previously in the news re-launching its jet card program under the Elevate banner.

Its new membership eliminated peak day surcharges and now includes Federal Excise Tax in quoted rates. There’s also a 30-day money-back guarantee beginning with the first flight. Plus, it joined NetJets and Alliance Aviation adding an Embraer Phenom 300 jet card.

Magellan’s fixed-rate, guaranteed availability membership programs provide reservations on non-peak days at just eight hours notice.

Its entry-level jet card is priced at $131,257 for 25 hours or $5,250 per hour for flights on light jets.

Magellan Jets sells size category and aircraft specific cards featuring the Hawker 400XP, Hawker 800XP, Citation X, Challenger 300 / Gulfstream G200, Falcon 2000, Gulfstream G-IV/SP, Gulfstream G450, and the Phenom 300.
