Wing Aviation Group joins ACSF and ASAP
Wing Aviation Group CEO Kevin Wargo says his company's decision to join the ACSF is part of its commitment to operational safety, and the company's decision to participate in ASAP is based on the same rationale.
Kevin Wargo wants to always make sure he is upholding the highest of safety standards.

Florida-based Wing Aviation Group, a component of the Alliance Aviation Group, has become the newest member of the Air Charter Safety Foundation. The operator will join the ACSF's 245 other members in their focus on leading and supporting the advancement of aviation safety standards. A prominent charter operator in the central Florida region, Wing will also participate in the ACSF's Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP).

CEO Kevin Wargo says his company's decision to join the ACSF follows on its longstanding commitment to operational safety. “The ACSF literally stands for safety, and one of the critical factors for Wing is to align itself with the optimal partners and ensure that we are operating with the highest standards.”

The ASAP is a separate programme administered by the ACSF in partnership with the FAA. Participation in the ASAP enables aviation 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.

Aaron Smith, Wing Aviation Group's safety director and Gulfstream captain notes that the company's decision to participate in the ASAP is similarly based on its safety emphasis. “We feel the programme allows users to be more open with incidents that may occur, incidents that would have normally gone unreported. Because of how the ASAP system works, we're confident it will increase our overall safety culture within the company.”

ACSF president Bryan Burns concludes: “The standard of leadership in this company is obvious from the degree of thought and consideration that have gone into joining us. Its safety rationale is right on target and completely aligned with our ACSF and ASAP mission.”
