  • Wyvern Wingman
  • IS-BAO Stage 3
  • FAA ‘Foreign Air Carrier Permit’

“We are pleased to announce that Elit’Avia Malta is now ARGUS Platinum rated, making us one of the industry’s best-accredited aircraft management companies,” says Michel Coulomb, CEO, Elit’Avia. “Our numerous accreditations are testament to the professionalism of our team, and our commitments to safety and industry best practices.”

“In addition to demonstrating that we operate at the highest industry standards, our accreditations also benefit our clients. For example, having the FAA Visa Waiver allows us to bring non-US citizens into that country without a visa, thus eliminating a significant barrier to travel. The obvious benefits for passengers are greater efficiency and convenience. For aircraft owners operating under our Maltese AOC, this accreditation increases the value of flight hours on their aircraft.”
