in the online database and successfully pass a rigorous Wingman
Standard Audit every two years.

to maintaining the highest standards of safety and excellence in the
industry," said John Reese, director of safety, security and standards
for ExcelAire. "Our customers have the added assurance of the ARG/US

eligible operators in our region to become an active applicant for the
FAA's Safety Management System Voluntary Program (SMSVP). Our

puts us at the forefront of the aviation safety community. We expected
to be fully compliant with the FAA SMSVP by late 2017."
