BELLEVILLE, Mich., March 20, 2019 — USA Jet Airlines, an Active On-Demand Company, is proud to have been recognized for exceptional safety training practices. The company recently received the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Diamond of Excellence Award for Aircraft Maintenance Technician Training and the Platinum rating by ARGUS International.
This was the fifth consecutive year that USA Jet Airlines was awarded the FAA Diamond of Excellence Award and the eighth year the company received the Platinum rating by ARGUS International.
The FAA Diamond of Excellence Award is given to companies with 100 percent employee participation in the Aviation Maintenance Technicians program. More than 700 airlines and repair stations are eligible to receive the Diamond Award but only the top quartile receive the award.
