Winners of the annual European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) Safety of Flight Awards were announced here at EBACE 2014. GlobeAir won the Bronze Award for 20 years or 40,000 hours of accident-free operation. London Executive Aviation took the Silver Award for its 30 years or 60,000 accident-free flight hours of operation, and the Gold Award went to Flying Service for 40 years, or 80,000 hours without an accident.
Three companies took Platinum Awards, representing at least 50 years or 100,000 unblemished hours of flight: PrivatAir, Tyrolean Jet Services, and VistaJet. “Simply put, when it comes to flight safety, these companies are the leaders,” said Brian Humphries, EBAA president, who presented the honors.
