West Palm Beach, Florida-based Custom Jet Charters has joined more than 220 aircraft operators participating in the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP). The ASAP is third-party managed by the Air Charter Safety Foundation in conjunction with the FAA.

CEO Lewis Liebert says: “At Custom Jet Charters, safety has always been a core value, so we are thrilled to participate in the Aviation Safety Action Program. We're certain it will continue to help CJC improve upon our safety initiatives and help ensure that our pilots and crew meet the highest standard of safety measures and awareness.”

The ACSF provides aviation safety-related services and support for business aviation and the on demand air charter industry. The Aviation Safety Action Program, a direct benefit of ACSF membership, 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 ASAP programme, including airlines.

“On behalf of the Foundation, I'm delighted that CJC is joining us,” says ACSF president Bryan Burns. “Both our ACSF and the ASAP offer solid opportunities to help ensure that we increase our safety-related vigilance and keep advancing the critical need for safety in every aspect of aviation operations. With our ACSF and ASAP participation continually expanding, we're also expanding our knowledge of safety and our commitment to advancing it in all its many aspects.”
