Universal Aviation Certified

The Universal Aviation® Certified program is designed to recognize and distinguish independent ground handlers around the world that meet the stringent standards of Universal Aviation for quality, training, safety, consistency, and compliance. These are ground handling partners with which we’ve had long-standing relationships—as preferred ground handlers of our parent company, Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc. And certification is only offered to those handlers who have proven that they share our absolute commitment to the success of our clients’ missions.

Client Benefits

Operators can feel confident that when they chose a Universal Aviation Certified Member, even in remote locales, they will receive the same level of service and commitment that they would at a Universal Aviation location. All members undergo the same training programs as Universal Aviation locations, must pass a rigorous audit, and must continually meet and exceed service standards.

Benefits of joining the network

Operating ground handling businesses in over 20 countries worldwide, we know what it takes to differentiate from the competition, build loyalty with a global audience, and succeed in this continually-evolving industry. We do this by consistently helping our clients reduce stress and drive risk out of their operation and doing everything it takes to help make their missions a success.

The Universal Aviation Certified Program is designed to continue building loyalty and trust among our clients globally, and reward our partners who share in our commitment to them.

As a Universal Aviation Certified Member you will have access to our customer service and ramp training programs in addition to other joint marketing initiatives. You’ll also benefit by being the primary handler on the field for receiving traffic from Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc. and its clients. Your location will display Universal Aviation Certified Member branding and signage, and will still maintain its own independent brand identity. What is critical to us is that we see both of our organizations grow and succeed by exceeding our clients’ expectations on the ground.
