Prime Jet obtains formal FAA recognition of its fully functional SMS

Today, Prime Jet is very proud to announce that the FAA has formerly recognized its fully functional FAA Safety Management System (SMS) for voluntary program (SMSVP).

SMS is the formal, top-down, organization-wide approach to managing safety risk and assuring the effectiveness of safety risk controls. It includes systematic procedures, practices, and policies for the management of safety risk

This has been years of work, development and implementation, led by our Safety Officer Gary Hoffman.   Less than 5% of all certificated Part 135 Air Carriers have obtained this formal recognition and we are only the second Colorado based company to have done so.   Prime Jet’s CEO, Cheryl Janke stated “Our clients will appreciate that every flight we do at Prime Jet is rigorously analyzed with a Flight Risk Analysis Tool (FRAT) before it ever leaves the ground.  We have an open reporting system encouraging all of our staff to speak up on anything they see or feel could compromise safety or efficiency of operation.  We hold quarterly safety meetings along with our FAA’s presence and discuss not only our reports but track several Safety Performance Indicators (SPIs).”  Prime Jet’s COO Andrew Gulsrud echoed “The SMSVP program is entirely above and beyond what is required of operators and truly solidifies our company’s mission statement”.

Prime Jet – The experts at fulfilling aircraft ownership and travel needs for its clients in the safest, most efficient and transparent means possible.
