International Jet Aviation was presented with the FAA 2017 Award of Excellence "Diamond Award" in person to International Jet's Maintenance Department (certificate below). To qualify for an AMT Diamond Award of Excellence, each eligible employer must have 100% of its AMT eligible employees receive an individual AMT Certificate of Training for a given calendar year which means each employee must complete a minimum of 12 hours (each of our AMT's averaged 36 hours in 2017!) We are all very proud of our team and realize we count on their expertise and professionalism each and every time we go airborne.
This prestigious award is a testament to the hard work and dedication put in by the International Jet maintenance staff. It emphasizes their commitment as individuals and as a group to going several steps beyond expectations to provide our customers with exceptional and safe service.
At International Jet every job task, every process we invent and implement, and every decision we make must ultimately be able to answer these "Gatekeeping Questions" in the affirmative: "is it safe, it is legal, and does it enhance the quality of experience for our employees, our vendors and our customers"? If we can't answer "yes" to these questions, the proposed solutions are not good enough, not acceptable; period. You can learn more about our commitment to safety here.
International Jet Aviation regards these "Gatekeeping Questions" and the inimitable IJA safety record as an unmistakable explanation for why we have achieved 39 years of operational excellence, having been bestowed many of the most important safety registrations and having been honored with distinguished awards. But these registrations and awards, while very important to us, are actually just the beginning of an effective safety and quality program.
