Northern Jet Management, a Part 135 operation based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has renewed its status on the Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) Industry Audit Standard (IAS) registry.
“Meeting the high standards of the ACSF audit adds an exclamation point to the commitment to safety in this organisation,” says Bill Kolstad, director of safety at Northern Jet Management. “The team involved in this is doing a tremendous job, continuing to improve our safety culture and implement industry best practices and procedures across all areas of the company.”
ACSF president Bryan Burns adds: “We congratulate Northern Jet Management on renewing its status on the IAS registry. It has once again demonstrated its commitment to continuous improvement.”
The IAS is an extensive audit programme specifically created for on-demand operators by a committee of Part 135 and 91K industry leaders. It is conducted every 24 months and is in-depth in its evaluation of regulatory compliance and the operator's SMS programme against both FAA and international standards.
Customers should look for the ACSF IAS registered logo and encourage their preferred charter provider to participate in the programme. The ACSF makes its operator registry and key company details available from its website at no charge.
