Priester Aviation of Wheeling, Illinois, has renewed its inclusion on the Air Charter Safety Foundation's Industry Audit Standard (IAS) registry.
“We recognise the incredible importance of providing the highest level of aviation safety, and commend our team for a successful ACSF renewal,” says president and CEO Andy Priester. “We have built our corporate culture around continuous improvement of our safety systems and utilise the ACSF audit as a benchmark that we strive to elevate each time our company is evaluated.”
ACSF president Bryan Burns adds: “We congratulate Priester Aviation on its continued dedication, commitment and support of our standard.”
The IAS is an extensive audit programme created for on-demand operators by a committee of Part 135 and 91K industry leaders. It is conducted every 24 months and is in-depth in its evaluation of regulatory compliance and the operator's SMS programme against both FAA and international standards.
