Nicholas Air has earned the Platinum rating after a safety and operations audit by Argus. It comes in addition to its Stage 2 rating from IS-BAO.
To achieve the Argus rating operators have to undergo an audit covering over 450 operational items related to safety and systems.
“Argus has long been respected as an industry authority on safety best practices and an operator’s commitment to maintaining the highest of safety standards. To have earned Platinum Status with Argus is a testament to our team’s ability to do everything at Nicholas Air with the safety of our members and our pilots as their top priority,” founder and CEO Nicholas J. Correnti tells Private Jet Card Comparisons.
Nicholas Air is one of the few programs yet to make any significant changes. To date, it has kept its 10-hour call-outs. It has been dealing with increased operating costs by raising prices.
Its jet card program offers specific aircraft and access across its fleet. Current types include the Phenom 100, Phenom 300, Citation CJ3, Citation Latitude, and Challenger 300 private jets. Fleet age averages under five years old.
It also operates Pilatus PC-12s that aren’t in its fixed-rate program.
