L.J. Aviation Renews ACSF Industry Audit Standard Registration
Washington, DC, June 5, 2015 — The Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) is pleased to announce that L.J. Aviation, Latrobe, PA, has renewed its status on the ACSF Industry Audit Standard (IAS) Registry.
“We congratulate L.J. Aviation on renewing their status on the IAS Registry,” said ACSF president Bryan Burns. “They have once again demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement.”
The IAS is the first and only extensive audit program 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 program against both FAA and international standards.
“As strong believers in the slogan ‘culture trumps everything,’ safety, execution and service are deliverables created by the L.J. culture,” said L.J. Aviation vice president of operations Ed Kilkeary, Jr. “Being a member of ACSF creates a vehicle to look beyond metrics and uncover the glue that makes us one.”
Customers should look for the ACSF IAS registered logo and encourage their preferred charter provider to participate in the program. The ACSF makes its operator registry and key company details available at no charge, so verification of IAS registration is quick and easy. Charter consumers can view the registry at www.acsf.aero/registry.
Supporting materials are available at www.acsf.aero/audit. Operators wishing to initiate the audit process should contact Russ Lawton at 1-888-SAFE-135 (888-723-3135).
