Clay Lacy lays claim to ACSF status
Clay Lacy Aviation, founded in 1968 by legendary aviator and industry pioneer Clay Lacy himself, has garnered a strong reputation for management and charter. It joins more than 210 other ACSF member companies.

Clay Lacy Aviation has joined the non-profit Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF). With more than 210 active members, the ACSF's vision is to promote and enable the highest levels of safety in personal, charter and business aviation.

As a new ACSF member, Clay Lacy Aviation's employees will also be able to participate in the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP). Administered by the ACSF in partnership with the FAA, the ASAP makes use of employee input to identify significant safety concerns and issues, operational deficiencies, non-compliance with regulations, deviations from company policies and procedures, and unusual events. Each report is investigated, and corrective actions are determined based on a non-disciplinary approach to flight safety.

“We are delighted to become ACSF members,” says Clay Lacy director of safety Ryan Nyssen. “Joining ACSF was a logical step in our focus on safety and continuous improvement, and we plan to actively participate in the ASAP programme to learn from other quality operators in our industry, and continue to mature our safety culture.”

ACSF president Bryan Burns adds: “Our multi-faceted approach to helping ensure aviation safety, in all its many aspects, is becoming more and more visible and important to aviation companies, and the fact that our membership is increasing so rapidly mirrors that critical importance.”
