The Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) has released its Industry Audit Standard.
Air charter operators and shared aircraft program managers now can start the process to achieve status as an ACSF Industry Audit Standard registered operator.
The ACSF Industry Audit Standard (IAS) is a program built from the ground up to set the standard for the independent evaluation of an air charter operator’s and/or shared ownership company’s safety and regulatory compliance, and incorporates Safety Management System (SMS) evaluation, according to foundation officials.
“From the beginning, our goal has been to bring the various interests – operators, consumers, auditors and even regulators – together to create a measurement tool that applies a consistent, high-quality standard to the industry,” stated ACSF President James Coyne.
Foundation officials hope customers will look for the ACSF IAS registered logo and encourage their preferred charter provider to participate in the program. Any consumer can quickly and easily validate the status of an operator through the ACSF audit web site.
