Aircraft and Passenger Safety

Providing a safe and superior travel experience is of paramount importance to our company. As employees, we personally accept the responsibility of placing the safety of our passengers above all other company objectives. Our vigilant pilots and employees, along with our ever-increasing standards, are the reason for our impeccable safety record and reputation.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires advanced certification and licensing for any airline to operate a passenger aircraft. To receive this licensing, an airline must earn multiple certifications that cover a variety of regulations and policies. For fixed-wing flights and aerial tour operations, Scenic Airlines holds a "Part 135" certificate. These government operational and safety rules apply to charter flights carrying up to 30 passengers.
