Pegasus Elite Aviation of Van Nuys, California has joined the The Air Charter Safety Foundation. The ACSF is a non-profit aviation safety organisation that provides programmes to enable the highest levels of safety in personal, charter and business aviation.
As an ACSF member, Pegasus Elite Aviation will be able to participate in the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP), which is administered by the ACSF in partnership with the FAA.
“We're very gratified to join the ACSF's ranks,” says Pegasus co-founder, president and CEO David Mendelson. “Because, ultimately, Pegasus is laser-focused on safety as a vital component of our mission, and we know that we can advance that element of our operations through our active participation in ACSF. At the same time, actively working with ASAP will also contribute to running an all-around safer operation.”
“On behalf of our rapidly increasing membership, we welcome Pegasus Elite Aviation to the Air Charter Safety Foundation,” adds Bryan Burns, ACSF's president. “The fact that we're now more than 210 members strong and growing is proof positive that this organisation is having a dramatic effect on the safety aspect of our industry.”
Orlando, Florida-based AEM Aviation has also joined the ACSF ranks. “We have always taken a 'safety-first' approach to our operations, and our participation in the ACSF is yet one more indication of how important safety is to our day-to-day functioning,” says AEM president John Valliant. “We're eager to become an active ACSF member, and that means actively participating in the ASAP as well.”
“We're very pleased to enrol AEM Aviation as yet another member among the growing roster of aviation-related companies in our ranks,” adds Bryan Burns.
