Business Jet Access Gains FAA Acceptance of SMS

Business Jet Access (BJA) has announced that they have officially received acceptance of their Safety Management System by the Federal Aviation Administration. BJA offers turn-key aircraft management and charter services based in the heart of Dallas at Love Field, and is one of only twenty operators nation-wide to achieve this recognition. The acceptance letter was inked on August 9, 2019 and solidifies nearly a decade of hard work on their SMS leading up to this occasion.

With 14 managed aircraft, 8 of which are on its Part 135 Charter certificate, BJA continues to experience significant demand for aircraft charter and management services. With the recent opening of hangar space at sister company, Business Jet Center, they are also now in a position to accommodate an increased number of clients looking to bring their aircraft to KDAL.

Having a robust safety system in place that is so instilled in the everyday functions of our employees is imperative to our success as we continue to grow,” says Britt Ham, Managing Director of Business Jet Access.

Director of Operations, James Cox says “It is a huge accomplishment, especially for a company of our size, and we are thrilled to be among a very small number of operators in the country that can say they have gone to these lengths to solidify their SMS.”

BJA currently has 52 employees, 50% of which are pilots, and continuously engages the employee group through Safety Committee meetings, monthly surveys and company-wide newsletters.

With all of the unexpected things that can happen on a daily basis, it takes a consistent effort and dedicated team to keep SMS at the forefront,” Cox says.

We have worked tirelessly at doing just that, and we are happy the FAA has taken notice.”
