Epps Aviation has been awarded its first ARGUS Platinum Rating, the highest level of ARGUS ratings, which is awarded only to those air charter operators who have demonstrated successful implementation of industry best safety practices relative to their operations and maintenance.
“We found the entire experience to be very helpful to our operation,” said Anton Coy, director of operations at Epps Aviation. “Through the audit experience, we were able to make very positive changes toward safety and efficiency. The auditors were very knowledgeable and professional. ARGUS also provided much guidance before, during and after the audit, and there was excellent support of the auditors and system by the ARGUS main office as well. Epps Aviation is very proud to have completed the audit and obtained the Platinum rating.”
Pat Epps, president and founder of Epps Aviation who recently achieved 50 years in business, added, “We have one more reason to celebrate in 2015 with the Platinum Rating for our 135 Charter Operation. I am especially proud of the Epps Charter team as we are currently the only Georgia-based Part 135 Operation that has obtained the ARGUS Platinum Rating.”
“I would like to welcome Epps Aviation to the elite and respected group of ARGUS Platinum Rated Operators,” said Joseph Moeggenberg, president and CEO, ARGUS International.
“The experienced team from Epps Aviation should take great pride in their Platinum Rating achievement. Our audit is a thorough and in-depth examination of an operator’s policies and procedures compared against a constantly evolving set of industry best practices, and it was apparent to our auditing team that Epps Aviation focused intensely on building and refining their entire operation. We are happy to welcome them into the exclusive group of commercial operators around the world that have achieved the ARGUS Platinum Rating.”
