Florida-based Elite Jets Charter has joined the Air Charter Safety Foundation's (ACSF) roster of 225 member companies whose joint mission is to enable the highest levels of safety in personal, charter and business aviation. It has also joined the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP), which is administered by the ACSF in partnership with the Federal Aviation Authority. As programme members, Elite Jets employees may voluntarily report significant safety concerns, non-compliance with regulations and other unusual events. Each report is investigated, and corrective actions are determined based on a non-disciplinary approach to flight safety.
“We're really excited to join the Air Charter Safety Foundation,” says general manager Mark London. “And I have to add that a contributing factor to our decision was the ability to participate in the ASAP programme. We proudly focus on comfort, luxury, elegance and convenience for our clients' benefit, but safety is simply a paramount concern of ours and we take it very seriously.”
ACSF president Bryan Burns adds: “Elite Jets will benefit immensely from our laser focus on safety issues that affect the entire industry. And we're likewise very happy that it'll also be participating in the ASAP programme, which goes even further to identify and reduce possible flight safety concerns, and to mitigate risk.”
