Business Jet Access gains FAA acceptance of SMS


Business Jet Access (BJA) has received acceptance of its Safety Management System by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The company offers turn-key aircraft management and charter services based in the heart of Dallas at Love Field and is one of only twenty operators nation-wide to achieve this recognition.

“Having a robust safety system in place that is so instilled in the everyday functions of our employees is imperative to our success as we continue to grow,” said Britt Ham, managing director of Business Jet Access.

Director of operations, James Cox said, “It is a huge accomplishment, especially for a company of our size, and we are thrilled to be among a very small number of operators in the country that can say they have gone to these lengths to solidify their SMS. With all of the unexpected things that can happen on a daily basis, it takes a consistent effort and dedicated team to keep SMS at the forefront. We have worked tirelessly at doing just that, and we are happy the FAA has taken notice.”

BJA operates a fleet of six Challenger 300s and 350s under Part 135 after recently adding another Challenger 350 to its charter fleet. Eight of BJA’s 14 managed aircraft are on its Part 135 Charter certificate.

“The Challenger 300/350 aircraft has excellent dispatch reliability. Adding a sixth Challenger to our fleet helps generate savings for our owners with streamlined maintenance and flexible crewing,” said Ham.

Manager of client services, Jamie Thies said, “The Challenger 300 series continues to be most requested charter aircraft due to its ability to reach either coast, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean at a conservative price point.”
