Culture of Safety

Our primary responsibility is ensuring the safety of you and your passengers. Solairus holds the Platinum rating from ARG/US, the Wingman certification from Wyvern, and is one of only 100 operators worldwide to be IS-BAO (International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations) Stage Three certified. The ARG/US Platinum and Wyvern Wingman ratings are awarded only to those operators who, after completion of an intense operations, maintenance, and safety systems audit by accredited industry experts, have demonstrated that their procedures meet or exceed industry “best practices” in all phases. IS-BAO certification is recognized as the international standard for aircraft operations and safety. In addition to industry auditing firms, Solairus has been audited and approved by several objective third-party commercial operators and Fortune 500 flight departments.

Solairus has an integrated Safety Management System, under the direction of our full-time Safety Officer, which provides many active measures to identify and mitigate potential risk. The Solairus Safety Officer chairs a Safety Committee which meets quarterly to discuss potential risks throughout the company and ways that we can mitigate those risks. In addition, he is responsible for publishing the company’s quarterly safety newsletter.

One of the innovative aspects of our safety program is our pre-flight Risk Assessment Tool (RAT). Designed by our Flight Operations and Safety teams, it is fully integrated into our Flight Operations Software and must be completed prior to each and every leg flown. The RAT takes input from directly from the operations software, to include crew currency and experience, aircraft equipment, airport data, as well as from the pilot-in-command, to include forecast or actual weather and other environmental factors. It then tabulates the data and produces a risk assessment score for every leg. Risk scores above 20 are considered “yellow” and require approval by the senior operations staff, prior to release. Risk scores above 45 are “no go” and must be mitigated prior to release.

Our “Sustainable Culture of Safety” must be more than a phrase.
Each member of the Solairus team is responsible for supporting our safety culture, which can only be made a reality through constant vigilance, identification and reporting of any risk, and systematically addressing every potential hazard.
