AAG renews IAS in association with ACSF
The Associated Aircraft Group recognises the critical importance of providing the highest level of aviation safety, and to that end has renewed its all-important status with the Air Charter Safety Foundation.
AAG offers helicopters charters in and around New York.

Associated Aircraft Group, a helicopter specialist based in Wappingers Falls, New York and recently acquired by Directional Aviation, has renewed its status on the Air Charter Safety Foundation Industry Audit Standard registry.

The ACSF Industry Audit Standard (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, against both FAA and international standards.

“The Associated Aircraft Group recognises the critical importance of providing the highest level of aviation safety,” notes John Gow, the company's president. “We've built our corporate culture around continuous improvement of our safety systems, and we use the ACSF audit as a benchmark that we strive to elevate each time our company is evaluated.”

ACSF president Bryan Burns congratulated the aviation company on its successful IAS renewal. “The Associated Aircraft Group has once again demonstrated its continued commitment to high standards by renewing its status on the IAS registry,” he says.
