03 Feb Private Jet Charter accidents and safe practices
Aviation Incidents and how do we avoid them?
Is flying ever truly safe?
A question many may ask themselves, in light of recent and past events. We read about it in the papers, we see it on the news, we may feel at times it could happen to us. To be straightforward, your odds of crashing in a plane are roughly 1 in 11 million. That puts you at 10 times more likely to be struck by lightning, at a rate of 1 in 1.2 million, and 100 times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash in a motor vehicle.
Knowing this information we still feel that even one incident is far too many, and we are constantly hard at work to ensure that our clients receive not only top notch service and quality, but also safety.

Here at BitLux our passengers and clients are our lifeblood, we thrive to serve you, and to give you every comfort and amenity that you could desire, safety is no exception, but our priority.
We are proudly incident free. We operate with a proprietary and 3rd party audited operating manual, specific to BitLux and unfaltering in approach. For starters, we ensure all crew and clients have all information in sync regarding timing, airports, flight plans and FBOs.
