Department of Defense

Kalitta Charters received approval from the DoD’s Civil Aircraft Review Board (CARB) in December 2005 to operate company-owned aircraft in all configurations, i.e. passenger, cargo and air ambulance.  Since then, Kalitta Charters has flown hundreds of missions for the DoD in all configurations.

The DoD issues an annual CPARS Report (Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System) to Kalitta Charters.  All reports to date have shown Kalitta Charters to be ‘Exceptional’ in all evaluated categories, which are:

  1. Quality of services
  2. Schedule
  3. Cost control
  4. Business relations
  5. Management of key personnel
  6. Utilization of small business

Department of Justice

Kalitta Charters is approved for flight operations by the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ).  Flight operations are regularly conducted for various agencies within the DoJ including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Federal Bureau of Prisons, U.S. Marshalls Service and the Drug Enforcement Agency.


Department of Energy

Kalitta Charters is approved for flight operations by the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE).  In addition to regular passenger operations for the DoE, Kalitta Charters’ aircraft are on constant alert status for several nuclear incident response teams.


Quality & Safety Standards

Quality and safety audits are conducted regularly by the DoD, DoJ and DoE to assess Kalitta Charters’ performance in all areas of operations.  Although civilian agencies such as ARG/US and Wyvern conduct audits for non-DoD approved carriers, the DoD standards for approval exceed FAA, ARG/US and Wyvern standards.  Kalitta Charters’ DoD CPARS reports are a matter of public record and are available for review at any time.
