Additionally, Air Georgian is completing its IOSA registration. The prestigious Platinum Rating is the highest level of ARGUS Ratings and is awarded only to those air charter operators who have demonstrated successful implementation of airline industry best safety practices relative to their operations and maintenance. ARGUS will present Air Georgian with the ARGUS Platinum Rating at NBAA 2012, booth # 3207.

“The ARGUS audit was not only thorough with experienced auditors, but cost effective and efficient as they were able to perform three separate audits during one visit,” said Daniel Bockner, Air Georgian Vice President Flight Operations. “We are very proud to see our hard work and commitment to developing a culture focused around safety and quality has been recognized with these industry leading certifications. We are very excited to be the first operator that ARGUS has conducted these three audits on in one visit and we would like to thank our employees for their dedication to the project and the ARGUS audit team members for their professionalism and knowledge.”

“ARGUS is the only audit organization in the world with the capability to audit operators against the Platinum Standard, IOSA, IS-BAO, and BARS,” said Joseph Moeggenberg, ARGUS International President and CEO. “Through our unique audit program, Air Georgian underwent a five-day IOSA audit and then separate two-day IS-BAO and Platinum audit during one seven-day audit event. We are pleased to see operators like Air Georgian who are dedicated to safe and quality operations achieve the ARGUS Platinum Rating, IS-BAO registration and are in the process completing their IOSA registration. I look forward to presenting Air Georgian with their ARGUS Platinum plaque at NBAA.”
