Our travel coordinator is available to take all the routine transport planning out of your hands, allowing you valuable time to concentrate on YOUR business.
Hazard Management Plan – Weather
Airspeed Aviation strives to deliver reliably and on time – but that doesn’t mean we compromise on operational safety.
To ensure we can get you there whenever possible – safely – Airspeed has developed a number of Hazardous weather management plans that allow us to respond to everything Mother Nature can throw at us.
In the last 9 years Airspeed Aviation has flown safely and legally in all manner of weather by strict adherence to these management plans. The only weather that has affected us has been fog – which affects all aircraft equally – and two severe thunderstorm events, during which several towns suffered millions of dollars in damage and we elected to drive the passengers instead.
Our Safety Policy clearly states that Airspeed Aviation puts Safety before Schedule – You can rest assured that if our pilots say “YES”‘ it’s safe to go – and if they say “NO”, it really is for your safety.
