Aviation Safety Standards

Safety is CSI’s first and foremost priority. For almost 40 years, the company has developed a comprehensive network of air carriers that include both, FAR Part 121, 129 and 135 air carriers, that meet or exceed FAA requirements for training, crew and aircraft maintenance. CSI verifies carriers maintain the proper operating certificates, insurance and permits necessary to operate on behalf of CSI and its customers.

As an FAA Part 135 operator and Department of Defense CARB certified air carrier, CSI adheres to the same rigorous safety standards that it has held its contracted air carriers to and ensures every operation meets the highest standards of safety and security in the on-demand charter industry. Safety is not just how we do our work; it is the essence of how decisions are made. The company’s risk management safety programs define procedures to mitigate risk in our work, as well as, policy and guidance to make sound decisions. CSI Aviation is also the proud holder of the Gold ARG/US rating that exemplifies our high commitment to safety and quality of service.

In addition, CSI performs independent audits to verify aircraft condition and air carrier facilities. The company will not compromise its rigorous safety standards.
