Safety is and always shall be our FIRST priority!!
Not only from the obvious maintenance standpoint, but also from a pilot's view, safety is our FIRST priority!!
The Captain of your flight is ultimately responsible for the safety and security of everyone on board. From the time the engines spool up for departure until they are shut down upon arrival, his/her command authority not only ensures a safe, comfortable flight, but is also mandated by the FAA...hence the name Pilot in Command. All pilots attend simulator-based training at FlightSafety International and/or CAE Simuflite on full-service contracts to not only sharpen their skills to handle any foreseeable emergency situation, but also to keep abreast of new technologies, techniques and any recent concerns involving the particular aircraft type.
Thorough pre-flights checks are performed not only on the aircraft, but also to determine weather conditions and forecasts, arrival airport status and information, recent changes to route structures and the like. Accurate weight and balance computations are made for each flight to assure the aircraft will perform as needed. Checklists are used during all phases of flight...from startup, to take-off, climb, cruise, descent and shutdown...
In addition, all charter flights are initiated with a "passenger briefing" conducted by crewmembers to familiarize our passengers with details of the aircraft, it's emergency exits and the like. Aircraft-specific reference safety cards are strategically located aboard all aircraft for each available passenger seat.
Should you have any questions regarding our safety record or procedures, please ask one of our pilots, contact us via phne/fax or feel free to contact the local FAA Flight Standards District Office and they'll be happy to assist you.
