ARG/US Platinum Certification

argus-logoPlatinum Rating – The highest level of ARG/US safety rating is awarded to those operators who meet the criteria for Silver and Gold, and successfully pass either an ARG/US on-site safety audit, or a recent Department of Defense (DoD) Air Carrier Quality and Safety inspection. The ARG/US audit is conducted identically to a Department of Defense audit by former DoD inspectors. This is a constructive, operational and system oriented evaluation to help identify and correct potential deficiencies or safety issues. The Platinum rating is awarded to charter operators who maintain only the strictest standards in quality and safety excellence.

Since August 2005, ARG/US International has consecutively awarded Macair their highest rating – the Platinum rating – for its focus on providing flights of the highest quality and emphasis on the most stringent safety standards.

FAQ

How much does a charter flight cost?
You will be chartering, or renting, the entire aircraft rather than just paying the fare for one seat like you would on a commercial airline. The cost of the charter trip is the same whether there is just one person or ten people in your party. The price of your charter flight is dependent on the type of aircraft and its hourly flight rate, and the departure and arrival airports, which determine the time required to fly your trip. Macair provides an estimate for the time that’s required to fly your trip and provide a firm quote to you when reserve your charter flight.

How far in advance may I book a flight with Macair?

Our 24/7team can get you a quote immediately, and can typically have your flight scheduled the day of booking. Customer service is our mantra, and getting your charter trip created swiftly and accurately is our priority.
What does “empty leg” mean?
An empty leg, also known as a transit aircraft special, is a one-way trip that the aircraft makes without having scheduled passengers onboard, such as when the aircraft must return to its base after a trip. Empty legs can be booked at a lower cost, but they do not offer the same flexibility as a regular charter trip that is based on your scheduling requirements.
