Newly launched fractional ownership brand, JetClub, has been awarded its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) by Transport Malta Civil Aviation Directorate (TM-CAD) and can now begin operating fractional and charter passenger flights.
JetClub CEO & Founder, Vishal Hiremath commented: "Over the past 12 months, we have been building processes that satisfy stringent safety standards of a commercial Air Operating Certificate (AOC) holder. Receiving an AOC is a testament that we as an operator have met and exceeded the exceptionally high operating standards of the Maltese and EU Authorities.† This makes receiving an AOC an important milestone for JetClub."
Charles Pace, Director General for Civil Aviation at Transport Malta CAD added: "To obtain an AOC, an operator must meet high regulatory, safety and operational standards.† Applicants go through a rigorous process to demonstrate that they will be able to carry out safe operation of commercial aviation services. We are proud to have JetClub as part of the Maltese and European aviation ecosystem."
While issuing an AOC, TM-CAD looks for qualified, experienced personnel holding key positions in the company along with evidence of operational capability, safety standards, maintenance oversight and proper documentation.† Malta is highly regarded as having stringent safety standards and a professional transport authority, and competent staff with an aviation friendly environment.
