Three join roster of ACSF's ASAP
Boomerang Air Charter, Saturn Aviation and Lionheart Holdings have joined the Aviation Safety Action Program.

Boomerang Air Charter, a PC12 fleet operator based in Jacksonville, Florida; Saturn Aviation, an Austin, Texas based aircraft management and charter company; and Part 91 operator Lionheart Holdings have made a pivotal commitment to advancing aviation safety by joining the ACSF's Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP).

The Aviation Safety Action Program enables flight operators to pinpoint and mitigate potential flight safety concerns, thereby significantly reducing risks. The self reporting system is administered by the ACSF in collaboration with the FAA and allows aviation operators to report, track and rectify safety issues.

ACSF president and CEO Bryan Burns says: "The commitment of these three companies to maintain the highest possible safety standards is indeed commendable. By joining the Aviation Safety Action Program, they have taken a significant step forward in our collective endeavour to ensure unparalleled safety for both passengers and crew. This move not only highlights their dedication to safety excellence but also sets a sterling example for others in the industry to follow."

Through its non-punitive reporting system, the ASAP programme nurtures a proactive 'just culture' that encourages open reporting and learning from incidents without fear of retribution. Furthermore, it facilitates a unique collaboration with the FAA, allowing the ACSF to act as an intermediary that shares best practices and provides valuable administrative resources. Participation in ASAP also significantly enhances an organisation's reputation by demonstrating a solid commitment to safety.
