Jacksonville, Florida-based Part 135 Malone AirCharter has recently joined the ranks of more than 320 operators at the Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF). Additionally, the company has signed on to use the ACSF's SMS Tool for its safety management system. Doing so will help ensure its compliance with the FAA's forthcoming mandate for all Part 135 operators to implement an SMS.

President and CEO Cristine Kirk says: “At Malone AirCharter, our commitment to safety has always been a cornerstone of our operations, and our membership with the ACSF emphasises our proactive approach to ensuring the highest level of safety standards for our clients and crew. And, by actively participating in the ACSF's SMS Tool, we remain dedicated to continuous improvement and a just safety culture, setting an example for the broader aviation community."

Through choosing to leverage the ACSF's low-cost SMS Tool, Malone AirCharter is demonstrating its absolute commitment to elevating comprehensive safety standards. By integrating the SMS Tool into its operations, the company will be equipped to identify, assess and mitigate safety risks proactively. The end goal is to enhance Malone's overall safety performance and strengthen its obligation to its passengers, crew and the public.

The ACSF's SMS Tool enables a systematic approach to safety management, aligning with FAA requirements. This intuitive tool empowers operators to streamline their safety practices, identify potential hazards and effectively address safety-related issues through risk management strategies.

“We extend a warm welcome to Malone AirCharter, and we're eager to have it as part of the ACSF membership,” says ACSF president and CEO Bryan Burns. “Its decision to adopt our SMS Tool demonstrates its ironclad dedication to safety excellence. We're confident that this collaboration will further reinforce the air charter industry's reputation for safety and reliability.”
