TAG Aviation Wins EBACE 2012 Safety Award

 - May 13, 2012, 2:50 PM

TAG Aviation (Stand 7020) was awarded the European Business Aviation Association’s prestigious Platinum Safety of Flight Award for 2012 yesterday. The award recognizes a European operator that surpasses 100,000 flight hours without incident or accident.

The Geneva-based company was recently ranked inside the top five of all UK AOC holders during a European Aviation Safety Agency audit that was conducted by the UK Civil Aviation Authority. In late March 2012 TAG Aviation successfully completed a Wyvern on-site audit to attain the elite “Wingman” status, a step above typical industry standards for air charter safety and a globally recognized seal of excellence.

One result of attaining Wingman status is that TAG Aviation has access to Wyvern’s pilot and aircraft safety survey (PASS) report. The report provides real-time data feeds to pilot information including insurance, medical and flight-time hours and shows that each flight dispatched has been vetted based on its safety components, and meets the Wyvern Standard.
