Safety is at the core of our decision-making on every level. The team of industry veterans at PJS manages our standards for due diligence with stringent safety mechanisms that require an absolute commitment to detail.
As an industry leader as it regards to safety, PJS is at the forefront of implementing standards that go well beyond the FAA minimum legal requirements.
Before setting 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. We supplement safety processes and the liability insurance policies of the Air Carriers with a liability policy of our own.
A midwest-based university made an exciting deal to move into a larger athletic conference resulting in its team traveling greater distances to unfamiliar cities and airports. The athletic department had limited time to analyze the viable alternatives and identify options that offered the most reliable, yet cost-effective solution to set up a comprehensive travel schedule.
PJS consulted with the university and provided four viable options for each sport’s specific needs:
The university chose option four because it offered all teams the ability to adjust based on each specific travel event. By having a variety of aircraft at their disposal, the university was able to utilize the 30-seat aircraft for shorter distances (for smaller teams like volleyball) or travel using shorter runways. The 50-seat aircraft made sense for a majority of basketball-related travel, and the 65-seat aircraft for when donors and boosters travel with the team.
In addition to the cost savings, teams saved time due to less ground travel to and from airports, fewer overnights in hotels, and less flight time by flying direct. Also, the university gained an academic advantage, as students used time on the charter flights as study hall and missed fewer classes.
