NetJets safety

The world’s largest private jet operator continues its focus on safety via a new heightened training program for its pilots

NetJets, the world’s largest private jet operator, said it has launched an Advanced Qualification Program (AQP).

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), “AQP is a voluntary alternative to the traditional regulatory requirements under CFR 14, Parts 121 and 135 for pilot training and checking. Under the AQP the FAA is authorized to approve significant departures from traditional requirements, subject to a justification of an equivalent or better level of safety. The program entails a systematic front-end analysis of training requirements from which explicit proficiency objectives for all facets of pilot training are derived.”
