There are rigorous regulatory requirements for the establishment and operation of an airline, the safety and security of its employees, crew training and the maintenance of the aircraft. In Europe, these requirements are known as the Joint Aviation Requirements Operating rules, or Jar-Ops. The rules outlined therein are equally true of those running traditional commercial airlines or those operating business aircraft for profit. It is the appropriate national aviation authority that oversees adherence to the JAR rules.
The aircraft has been designed using the most technologically advanced processes, and is based on the CATIA 5 programme. Embraer bring their legacy of building safe, high utilisation commercial aircraft to the design and manufacture of the Phenom series. The cockpit, engines and avionics have been designed to reduce pilot workload while in the air and on the ground.
JetBird will hire experienced commercial pilots to fly our airplanes. Two pilots will be on board for all flights. Pilots will undergo initial, refresher and ongoing simulator training as appropriate.
