Aviation data and services firm Argus launched a new online registry of charter operators that features the company’s charter evaluation and qualification (Cheq) rating. Cheq provides charter buyers with an independent rating based on an operator’s actual safety history. Until now, these ratings have not been available free to the public in a searchable online registry.
Aviation Research Group/U.S. (ARG/US) and Avinode have launched the TAAP (trip analysis availability and pricing) service, a combination of the ARG/US Cheq (charter evaluation and qualification) system and the Avinode Pax (pricing and availability) service. Customers can search for operators, check the operators’ ARG/US safety rating, get trip pricing and aircraft availability and perform a TripCheq, using a single Web interface.
