The 3rd annual event brings together the private jet management and jet card provider’s over 500 employees to focus on safety
Jet Linx Aviation is grounding its fleet of over 100 private jets for a day once again as part of its third annual safety summit. By dedicating the entire day to advancing its rigorous safety standards the Omaha-based business aviation operator looks to highlight its focus on the subject.
The company claims to be the only air carrier in the United States to voluntarily halt operations for this type of event. The focus of the Safety Summit this year is safety culture, safety management, and how to identify potential hazards. The day includes a special keynote session from Jim Hall, former National Transportation Safety Board chairman, on organizational contributing factors in aviation safety.
