Million Air Dallas joins the ACSF and its ASAP
Million Air Dallas is committed to utilising the safety tools the ACSF provides to ensure the continuing strengthening of its safety management system.
President and accountable executive Don Rickerhauser.

Addison airport-based FBO Million Air Dallas has become the newest member and participant in the Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP).

President and accountable executive Don Rickerhauser says: “We're excited to team up with the ACSF, FAA and our industry colleagues through active participation in the Aviation Safety Action Program. Joining this initiative will enable us to identify and implement industry-best safety initiatives, thereby increasing our safety margin and raising the level of safety awareness within our pilot group.”

The ASAP is a voluntary, self-reporting programme that enables ACSF member companies to identify and reduce possible flight safety concerns, as well as to mitigate risk. In cooperation with the FAA, the ACSF serves as a third-party manager of the ASAP for its members, including rotor wing operators, on demand charter operators, fractional operators and corporate flight departments. The ACSF's members represent more than 60 per cent of all participating organisations in the programme, including airlines.

ASAP participation is a direct benefit of the ACSF, a Washington DC-based organisation that provides aviation safety-related services and support for business aviation and the charter industry. The programme is being extended to aviation organisations of all sizes and missions, including to helicopter operators.

ACSF president Bryan Burns says: “We're grateful to see this broadening level of regard and respect for what the ASAP programme can do for virtually all aircraft safety-related matters."
