He added, “As a voluntary international standard, it represents their commitment to safety and continuous improvement of all facets of their operation. We congratulate Exec 1 and wish them great success in the future.”

The light jet operator offers an as-available jet card with guaranteed pricing for flights that begin or end within a 500-mile radius of Ankeny, Iowa.
