Thrive Aviation earns Argus Platinum safety rating

Las Vegas-based Thrive Aviation has added Argus Platinum and IS-BAO Stage 1 to its safety ratings

Las Vegas-based Thrive Aviation has earned a Platinum safety rating from Argus.

It is an upgrade to its longtime Gold status.

It came after completing an on-site audit with Argus standards team.

The review is an in-depth, historical safety analysis of planes, pilots, and procedures, as well as a validation of enhanced standards in the operation’s SMS and Emergency Response Plans.

Thrive’s Director of Safety, Brian Harlan, said, “Argus Platinum has become the standard by which other standards are set. This is not just a stamp of approval in process, but a reflection of our team’s hard work and commitment to a superior culture of safety before anything else.”

Co-Founder and Thrive’s acting Director of Operations, Stuart Edenfield, adds, “We’ve always been a safety-first organization, but with our rapid growth over the past few years, we knew that we needed to invest heavily in scaling that culture.”

As Thrive prepares to expand their operational footprint globally with the addition of a new Gulfstream G600, it also achieved IS-BAO Stage 1 certification through a simultaneous audit of international operating standards.

Thrive launched an as-available jet card membership program last year.
