Fly Framför Operating Standards and Flight Safety FAQs
How Fly Framför Selects Its Operators
Your safety is our utmost priority. We carefully choose operators for our accessible fleet based on high safety standards, strict maintenance programs, and conservative operating protocols. Our operators undergo thorough evaluations, including in-person audits of flight departments and compliance with FAA regulations. They are audited by our Dedicated Safety Team regularly. All operators are FAA 14 CFR 135 regulated, ensuring superior oversight.
At Fly Framför, we prioritize passenger security. All passengers must provide a valid government ID for check-in. We digitally verify passenger names and record weight and baggage dimensions to comply with FAA and operator mandates. Our team assists in arranging seating based on center-of-gravity considerations. We reserve the right to prohibit unfit passengers from flying.

Are helicopters safer than cars?
Yes, it is true that traveling by helicopters is generally considered safer than traveling by cars. Studies and analyses have shown that helicopter travel has a lower accident rate compared to cars and SUVs, making it a safer mode of transportation. Helicopter accidents are rare and have been declining over the years, further supporting the safety of helicopter travel.
Some useful statistics about helicopter safety are:
When choosing between a twin-engine helicopter and a single-engine helicopter, consider factors such as cabin size, passenger capacity, and luggage weight. Twin-engine helicopters are preferred for carrying heavier loads and maximizing weight limits, rather than solely for safety redundancy.
Yes, it is true that helicopters can glide. Helicopters can perform a maneuver called auto-rotation, which allows them to glide safely for sustained distances without engine power. During training, all FAA certified pilots complete comprehensive auto-rotation exercises to ensure they are proficient in this safety procedure.
When will Fly Framför proactively cancel flights?
Fly Framför will cancel a flight if our team anticipates above-average turbulence, ensuring passengers’ comfort. We will also cancel flights if there is a reasonable chance of adverse weather leading to distant diversions. In such cases, we arrange ground transportation to get fliers to their final destinations.
