Flight Options recently welcomed more than 50 of its partner maintenance providers to a two-day summit at its Cleveland headquarters. The summit consisted of informational sessions, presentations and discussion forums regarding Flight Options’ maintenance network, which it claims is the largest dedicated maintenance network in general aviation.

“Flight Options’ first annual maintenance summit was a great success and illustrated the dedication to continuous improvement in safety and oversight that we share with all of our partners,” said Todd Hattaway, vice president for maintenance. “This meeting allowed us to discuss issues openly and share best practices with those leading maintenance providers that help us deliver the high level of safety and service that is synonymous with Flight Options.”

The summit, which took place on November 28 and 29, was attended by top companies in private aircraft maintenance. Event highlights included an overview of a safety management system and introductions to Flight Options’ own safety and service-based culture and its training modules. Flight Options plans to make the maintenance summit an annual event.
