Safety is a common question from our clients, and Blackstar Aviation Aviation recognises that nothing is more important than your safety and security. Chartered flights are as safe, if not safer than commercial airlines. To that end, Blackstar Aviation Aviation has secured systems and developed relationships that allow us to provide information and services to our clients that assure them that, when using our air charter services, they are flying safe and secure. Safety goes hand in hand with our job as your charter aircraft broker to give you the pricing and flexibility you want.
Blackstar Aviation’s founding partners are qualified Australian commercial pilots, meaning we have an intimate knowledge of not only Domestic Safety protocol set out by CASA but also internationally recognised standards overseen by ICAO in Montreal.
Private Charters can expect similar security controls to a commercial airliner. However, these are streamlined due to the size of small regional airports. While the security process will never be compromised, you can expect a far more exclusive and stress-free experience. Most regional airports will allow your car to be driven to the aircraft, where your baggage will be inspected along with your passport by the Captain. On international flights expect to be greeted by a customs official on arrival at your aircraft. Therefore the carriage of prohibited goods must still be adhered to.
Smoking is not permitted while on board and while boarding the aircraft. Your Crew will Indicate where you can smoke.
Finally, the carriage of pets domestically may be permitted by some operators, however, please ensure your broker is fully aware of this at the time of booking.
Please note you must at all times follow the instruction of the crew and the responsibility for the safety of the flight lies with Captain, they will not commence the flight if they deem it to be unsafe or un-compliant, their decision is final and non-negotiable.
