Moline, IL – Elliott Aviation, a leader in aviation solutions has been awarded an ARGUS Platinum Rating to their Charter division, the highest level of rating within the ARGUS system. In addition to the ARGUS Platinum Rating, Elliott Aviation has maintained a perfect flight record since 1936, well before an official audit rating existed and has maintained that record through today.
The Platinum rating is only awarded to operators with the highest-level of experience who pass the on-site safety audit and meet the criteria for the ARGUS Gold rating. The Platinum Rating also requires charter operators to have a clear and workable emergency response plan, a well-developed safety management system, effective policies and procedures and documented records for all major aspects of operations and maintenance.
Operated out of their Minneapolis, MN location, Elliott Aviation’s flight operation maintains its own fleet of managed and leased aircraft flying 91 and 135 missions in addition to brokering charter flights. Their Flight Services team includes 25 schedulers, pilots, mechanics and sales representatives.
“Given our exceptional safety record, gaining the ARGUS Platinum Rating was a natural next step in Elliott Aviation’s evolution,” said Lawrence Harting, Vice President of Flight Operations and Minneapolis General Manager of Elliott Aviation. “We couldn’t have done it without the hard work and dedication of our entire Elliott Aviation staff and the continued support of our valued customers.”
