Preferred Suppliers: Ensuring Safety and Quality
At Admiral Jet, the safety and service standards for all our aircraft are of utmost importance. To maintain these standards, we have established a Preferred Suppliers list, consisting of carefully vetted aircraft operators and owners. In order to qualify as a preferred supplier, operators and owners must undergo a comprehensive vetting process and provide up-to-date documentation, including:
- Aircraft operator certificate.
- Public liability insurance.
Furthermore, we require our Preferred Suppliers to adhere to our minimum service standards to ensure that our customers receive the quality they expect.

ARGUS and Wyvern Certified Aircraft
ARGUS and Wyvern are the leading safety and best practice auditors for our suppliers in the Aviation industry.
Admiral Jet has access to ARGUS Certified aircraft operators and owners. The rigorous audit they go through demonstrates financial solvency, advanced procedures, as well as exceptional principles and working practices.
Our Wyvern approved suppliers ensure that each flight booked through Admiral Jet meets the requirements that Wyvern have enforced—known as “The Wingman Standard”. The industry pioneering safety protocols that exceed by far the minimum regulatory requirements for Private Jet Charter.
Aircraft operators are also audited for safety by ARGUS and Wyvern on a periodical basis. These accreditations which come with such high standards are optional for private jet operators. Still, once you hold the certification, you are allowed to promote your rating. The rating can vary depending on several factors such as:
- Safety history
- Scheduled maintenance procedures
- Training programs for crew and operational teams.
ARGUS certify charter operators using a method called Charter Evaluation and Qualification (CHEQ). This certification is based on 4 rating levels
- Level 1) Does Not Qualify
- Level 2) Gold
- Level 3) Gold Plus
- Level 4) Platinum
Wyvern’s Pilot & Aircraft Safety Survey (PASS) Programme label aircraft operators as Entry-level of ‘Registered’ or the advanced certification of ‘Wingman’.
If you choose to charter with a Wyvern approved operators or owners, Admiral Jet will make any certifications or reports available to you on request. You’ll have the confidence that the aircraft you chose will meet the highest level of safety standards.
Air Operator Certificate (AOC)
For a Private Jet or Helicopter to perform flights, aircraft operators and suppliers have to have an AOC by law. The requirement is to ensure that the aircraft meets its relevant registered country’s standards. These standards further enhance the commitment that aircraft and operational procedures are competent, experienced, and to ensure that they can perform private jets flights on a commercial basis to the country’s minimum standards.
For the Aircraft Operator Certificate (AOC) to be granted a series of checks including:
- Regular maintenance
- Crew training
- operational procedures such as safety Policy, flight & fuel planning.
In North America and Canada, the AOC is sometimes called an Air Carrier Operating Certificate.
The process for receiving an AOC is thorough and detailed. Hence, it takes a Private Jet operator or owner around 24 months to obtain on average. Many aircraft owners fail to get an AOC granted as they do not meet the required standards.
Admiral Jet will only offer aircraft owners and suppliers who have a current Aircraft Operator Certificate or Air Carrier Certificate.
Part 135 aircraft
In the USA, The Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) will grant a Part 135 certification to private jet operators and owners that are permitted to fly for commercial gain. Part 135 includes any charter flights and air taxi services.
Admiral Jet will only provide Part 135 registered aircraft to guarantee that our passengers are flying on the most reliable, safest and secure aircraft private jet service available.
