FAA Part 135 insures that the private jet’s pilot’s license and experience qualify for certification. Part 135 also monitors the pilots:
- safety record
- training record (Pilot Training and Flight & Duty Records)
- current medical record
- General Operating and Flight Rules (14 CFR Part 91)
- Certification: Pilots, Flight Instructors, and Ground Instructors (14 CFR Part 61)
- Pilot Schools (14 CFR Part 141)
- Aeronautical Experience Checklist (MS Word)
To reassure customers concerned with Air Safety, ACS often advise meeting the actual pilots in advance of the private jet charter. This is an opportunity to ask any safety questions that feel appropriate, or simply a chance to ask for and verify personal safety references.
As ACS arrange literally thousands of private charters a year, we can often recommend suitable pilots for customers who find flying uncomfortable, or who’s criteria include the affability of the pilot and cabin crew
When on a private jet, we advise customers to communicate with the pilot as frequently as is necessary to gain confidence that all is going smoothly and to plan.
