Our decades of experience in aviation have laid the foundation of the Principal Aviation Safety culture, which is the most essential part of our business. We have established a robust internal safety auditing program that sets some of the strictest safety requirements in the industry for our aircraft operating partners.

A Dedicated Safety Team

We have a dedicated safety team that conducts safety evaluations before each flight. An aircraft and crew must meet our strict requirements to fly on it. In addition to our in-house safety requirements for our aircraft operating partners, we utilize independent third-party aircraft safety auditors for another layer of safety due diligence on every aircraft, crew, and operator we conduct flights with.

Principal Aviation has safety accreditations from industry safety leaders ARGUS and Wyvern and is a registered rated broker through both companies. Principal Aviation exclusively utilizes aircraft and operators that maintain audited safety ratings from ARG/US and Wyvern. Principal Aviation is a member of the Air Charter Safety Foundation, echoing our dedication and commitment to bringing safety to the forefront of all air charter companies.



The company utilizes objective, non-intrusive, and fact-based analysis to help support key aviation decisions with the help of quality information. Since it was founded in 1996 by Joseph J. Moeggenberg, ARG/US has grown to be a standard for all charter operator safety reports, aircraft operating cost reports, and market research for aircraft manufacturers. The company operates additional offices in Doylestown, Pennsylvania to support its Safety Management Systems, which it pioneered for the business aviation industry. It continues to promote this standard for operations through technologically superior information products and the highest quality data and reports.



WYVERN, Ltd. is an aviation safety and risk assessment company. Since 1991 we have been a global leader in aviation audits and data services with a purpose of elevating safety, every day and promoting a positive safety culture throughout organizations.
