Argus Accreditation

Sterling Is First Argus-certified Training Provider

Industry safety rating auditor Argus International introduced cabin crew training provider Sterling Aviation Services as the first member of its certified training program. Argus established the certification to recognize the organizations that contribute to training industry standards at the highest level to support safe corporate flight operations.


Calgary, Canada-based Sterling has more than a quarter century of experience in training flight attendants. The company also provides manuals, annual recurrent training, and education covering aviation food safety and executive services. Argus recognized Sterling and its leadership team this week at the 2024 NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference.


“Where they really meet industry best practices is in their emergency training,” said Ed Wandall, Argus’ v-p of business aviation. He also noted an NTSB report stating that “the performance of flight attendants in emergencies can profoundly affect the survival and injury rates of passengers.”


According to Wandall, Sterling’s “emergency training uses the specific aircraft types that flight attendants will be flying in and is comprehensive and vibrant. Sterling Aviation is the perfect example of why we developed this certification program.”
