The independent ARGUS rating system looks at an aircraft operators safety history, and produces a grade for that operator. This system is able to confirm the legitimacy of a charter operator, the safety history of a charter operator, liability insurance confirmation, pilot training, experience, certifications and type ratings, and completion of operator performed pilot background checks. ARGUS developed this program over a decade ago, to be the most accurate and detailed third-party due diligence system for charter operators, buyers and passengers throughout the world. The ratings use a proprietary algorithm that forms the foundation of the system. Operators that have a safety history equal to or greater than their peers are provided with an ARGUS Gold Rating. In order to achieve a Gold rating, ARGUS conducts in-depth research into a number of databases and other reputable sources. Historical information on the commercial certificate, pilots and aircraft serial numbers are compiled as well as processed and scored. This information is compared against an aggregate group with similar exposures and determines whether or not the applicant is eligible for the Gold Rating.
