ARG/US, the Cincinnati, Ohio-based aviation consulting and safety auditing company, is putting safety on display at the NBAA Convention this year. The company is asking all Platinum- and Gold Plus-rated charter operators to “Show Off Their ARG/US Rating” during the show, and encourages operators to stop by the ARG/US booth (No. 2132) to pick up their appropriate ribbon. More operators than ever qualify to be part of the showing. At the convention, ARG/US announced it is awarding its Platinum rating, the company’s highest, to nine charter operators in the third quarter of this year.

ARG/US reports it has performed more audits this year–almost 70–than ever before. This year the company began offering an IS-BAO audit within its overall ARG/US audit standard, enabling companies to qualify for both an ARG/US safety rating and IS-BAO compliance in one audit process. Furthering its safety push at the show, the company also announced partnering with the SilverStone Group of Omaha, Neb. (Booth No. 3115), a risk management company, to offer safety management system implementation and auditing services to ARG/US clients.
