May 22, 2017 - 3:21 pmARGUS International, Inc. (ARGUS) is pleased to announce 2017 marks Tyrolean Jet Services’ sixth consecutive year as an ARGUS Platinum Rated Operator. The Platinum Rating is the highest level of ARGUS Ratings and is awarded only to those air charter operators who have demonstrated successful implementation of industry best safety practices relative to their operations and maintenance. Tyrolean Jet Services received their first Platinum Rating February 22, 2011. “With our Platinum Rating in place we’ve avoided short notice, less diligent audits occupying our staff and their valuable time. One of our most considerable charter programs from an entertainment company in Hollywood, CA was just approved without sending their own auditors because of our ARGUS Platinum Rating,” said Martin Lener, CEO of Tyrolean Jet Services. “Audits like ARGUS raise us above the heavy competition in a volatile market these days.” “I would like to congratulate Tyrolean Jet Services on their continued commitment to the highest industry standards,” said Joseph Moeggenberg, ARGUS International, Inc. President and CEO. “The Platinum Standard is a challenging, thorough audit that truly separates the extraordinary operators from the rest. We are happy to have Tyrolean Jet Services in this elite group of charter operators.” ARGUS PROS (Partners and Resources for Operational Safety), a wholly-owned subsidiary of ARGUS International, is the only audit organization that has developed its own industry-leading audit standard for charter operators and holds authorizations from two world-recognized standards organizations. The ARGUS Platinum Audit requires a thorough onsite audit of the company’s operations and maintenance programs along with a well-developed Safety Management System (SMS), Emergency Response Plan, and well-documented maintenance and operational records. ARGUS Platinum Rated Operators are subject to the audit renewal process every two years.
