NetJets achieves safety milestone
NetJets has become the first private aviation company to achieve Level IV of the FAA’s Safety Management System (SMS) pilot program.
“The achievement of SMS Level IV underscores NetJets’ commitment to safety and enhances NetJets’ overall compliance-plus aviation safety management system,” said Shane Eyer, president of NetJets Aviation. “NetJets is dedicated to providing the most stringent operational, maintenance and training procedures in the industry and we are proud to reach this important safety milestone.”
