Jet card seller and aircraft management company Jet Linx Aviation yesterday grounded its fleet.

As usual, the one-day pause was for its annual Safety Summit, bringing together over 550 employees as part of its commitment to operations.

The 8th-largest charter/fractional operator, Jet Linx, holds the top safety ratings from Argus, Wyvern, and IS-BAO.

According to a press release, “This annual event reinforces Jet Linx’s steadfast commitment to continuously enhancing its robust Safety Management System (SMS) and fostering a culture of safety excellence across all aspects of its operations.”

The Omaha-based operator has been holding the summit since 2017.

“Jet Linx’s unwavering commitment to safety is truly unparalleled in the aviation industry,” said Brent Wouters, President and CEO.

He added, “The Safety Summit provides a powerful platform for our team to collaboratively explore new horizons in safety, share best practices, and reinforce our shared responsibility to safeguard our clients, team members, and aircraft.”

This year’s event featured keynote presenter Amy Grubb, PhD, an internationally respected Digital Transformation Advisor for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Grubb brings extensive experience in leadership development, organizational culture, and change management, having served in various high-level roles at the FBI for over two decades.

Wouters said, “With Amy Grubb’s expertise in organizational psychology and change management, we are excited to gain valuable insights that will further strengthen our safety-centric culture.”

The agenda also included an annual safety performance review, case studies on emerging safety challenges, and internal safety awards to recognize individual team members’ dedication to building a more robust safety culture.

During the day, Jet Linx serves jet card clients via third-party operators.

Its jet card is an on-fleet, off-fleet hybrid.
