At PJS, due diligence is the cornerstone of our safety program. We know that by pro-actively discerning the best available air carriers and pilots, we end up with more consistent and safer flights for our clients. Using qualitative and quantitative analysis, we determine and track which carriers have the best practices, the safest operating histories and the highest standards for their pilots – all of which ultimately reduce our clients’ exposure to anything unexpected.
THE ONLY NORTH AMERICAN BROKERAGE FIRM WITH A DEDICATED DIRECTOR OF SAFETY, RECENTLY NAMED TO THE NBAA SAFETY COMMITTEE
Stringent safety mechanisms require an absolute commitment to detail. We’re unique in North America as we employ a dedicated Director of Safety, a revered industry pro who spearheads our proactive approach. This industry expert is at the forefront of implementing standards that go well beyond the FAA minimum legal requirements. While we have a zero incident history, our safety standards are never standing still. We’re always adapting to industry developments to ensure you always get there safely. Having our Director of Safety recently being named to the NBAA Safety Committee, our commitment to keeping the highest standards of safety practices in the industry has never been more evident.
DETAILED CHECKS THAT GO BEYOND FAA REQUIREMENTS
We are industry experts and we know that FAA compliance is only one part of an aircraft or pilot’s history, so our detailed measures go beyond the expected norm. Only 10% of legal airlines meet PJS’ strict standards as we impose non-negotiable markers around a clean operating history, aircraft age, and liability insurance levels. All aircraft and pilots are pre-vetted using PJS’ stringent requirements, then re-vetted prior to every new engagement, with all the data backed up by third party reporting. Qualitative and quantitative checks are complemented with information from the FAA, DOT, and NTSB, bringing a thorough approach to safety that anticipates any potential risks.
PJS considers pilot flight time to be an important indicator of safety. Since, NTSB research has shown that accident rates decrease by nearly 50% once a pilot obtains 100 hours and continues to decrease thereafter, PJS will not engage pilots that do not meet our own strict experience requirements.
Before you ever set foot on the aircraft, our in-house safety team examines the operator accident, incident and enforcement history along with aircraft age, history and liability insurance coverage.
Along with our own internal intel, PJS utilizes several public and private background data sources for assessing vendors including the FAA, NTSB, FlightSafety, ICAO and EASA. We also receive audit reports from Wyvern and ARG/US that include pilot background checks as well as pilot experience data.
“The safety of our customers, their colleagues, and their families is the single highest priority at PJS. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our safety practices to meet that critical goal."PJS CEO, Greg Raiff
