For Immediate Release:
NovaJet Awarded Gold Rating by ARGUS

ARGUS International (ARGUS) is pleased to announce NovaJet has obtained the ARGUS Gold Rating. To achieve an ARGUS Gold Rating an operator must meet the current ARGUS Gold Rating requirements including, but not limited to, maintaining complete, current, and accurate data in the ARGUS CHEQ (Charter Evaluation and Qualification) System suitable for producing an ARGUS TripCHEQ report. 

The ARGUS CHEQ System is widely recognized as the most visible and sought after third party due diligence on business aircraft charter operators. Participation in the CHEQ system will now enable charter customers to request the ARGUS TripCHEQ Report containing fully-vetted, real-time information about NovaJet company authorizations, flight crew experience and aircraft accommodations. 

TripCHEQ ensures that a NovaJet flight will meet your standards. 

TripCHEQ examines:

  • Operational Control of the flight. This assures that your flight has not been brokered to another operator without your knowledge.
  • The crews’ experience in this airplane type.
  • The crews’ certification and type ratings.
