Desert Jet has maintained a perfect safety rating since its founding in 2007.  In 2009 Desert Jet became one of the first charter companies to earn IS-BAO registration, demonstrating compliance with a global business aviation best practices standard.  Desert Jet has also been an industry leader in safety, creating the first iPad Flight Risk Assessment Tool app for industry use.
