The international network of AAG Global Member/Operators flies Sikorsky S-76® helicopters, the industry standard for executive aircraft. Network members must meet and maintain AAG Global Standards of Excellence for safety and service. The standards were developed exclusively for AAG Global and will be audited by Aviation Research Group/U.S., Inc. (ARG/US). The standards address every aspect of service from the interior outfitting of the aircraft to client preferences in onboard catering. Pilot qualifications, ease of flight reservations, safety inspections and timeliness in departures and arrivals are some of the Standards of Excellence provided by AAG Global Member/Operators.
“Executive travelers now have a resource that assures them a consistent level of service and ease of making their travel reservations no matter where in the world they travel,” said McQuade. “We’ve recognized that the most effective way to deliver the level of quality executive travelers demand is to link established operators who can meet and maintain the rigorous standards expected by executive travelers.”
