Florida-based air charter provider, Plus One Air, has joined the non-profit aviation safety organisation, Air Charter Safety Foundation and its Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP). The recently-founded Plus One Air enterprise is based in Fort Pierce.
The ACSF now encompasses more than 240 member companies and provides an array of programmes to its members, enabling them to achieve the highest levels of safety in personal, charter and business aviation.
Robert Koch, president of Plus One Air, is enthusiastic about his company's decision to join ranks: “The reason we did so is because we value constant improvement, not only within Plus One Air, but throughout our industry,” he states. “Equally important, our participation in the Aviation Safety Action Program allows us to improve our safety profile even further, through non-punitive reporting and with a cooperative, community-driven approach.”
The ASAP is administered by the ACSF in partnership with the FAA. Plus One Air's membership enables its employees to 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.
“On behalf of our membership, I'm pleased to welcome Plus One Air to the foundation,” said ACSF president Bryan Burns. “Its participation in the ASAP programme reinforces its commitment to provide the safest aircraft and flight crews for its clients.”
