The ARGUS CHEQ (Charter Evaluation and Qualification) program was developed over a decade ago as the most accurate and detailed third-party due diligence system for charter operators, buyers and passengers around the world.

ARGUS extracts, filters, and vets data on charter operators around the world through the CHEQ Program. To score the gathered data, ARGUS uses a proprietary algorithm that has formed the foundation of the only rating system in the business jet charter marketplace. This scoring system, that is the backbone of CHEQ, provides charter buyers with an independent, third-party, factually-based rating on an operator’s actual safety history.

 

 

 

     

 

 

With CHEQ Your Due-Diligence Is Done

 

The CHEQ system has three major components: historical safety ratings, current aircraft and pilot background checks, and on-site safety audits. Analysis of these components results in four potential levels of safety rating: DNQ, Gold, Gold Plus, and Platinum. Each level reflects analysis and ranking based on increasing amounts of detailed information on the charter operator. The CHEQ system is the most comprehensive and detailed safety analysis program in the industry.

 

The ARGUS CHEQ Report provides charter customers with:

  • Complete, in depth safety reports on your charter operators
