ARGUS International, Inc., a member of the SGS Group, honors Richmond, Virginia-based Dominion Aviation Services, Inc., as a Platinum Elite operator. Dominion Aviation Services, Inc. has been an ARGUS Platinum-rated operator since 2006.

Having proven itself as a company focused on safety, quality and service, Dominion Aviation was invited to elevate its operations by meeting the highest worldwide standard in the industry, Platinum Elite, an industry-changing program available to select ARGUS Platinum-rated operators. At this level, operators simultaneously meet the ARGUS Platinum standards and agree to be continuously monitored by the ARGUS team. The program features real-time operational safety performance-monitoring and timely visibility to significant operator changes.

All of us at ARGUS International, Inc., have been impressed with their operation and proud to have them as a Platinum Elite-rated operator," says Mike McCready, ARGUS International president.
