ACI Jet Joins the ACSF ASAP Program
Washington, DC, October 4, 2018 — California-based aircraft management and private jet charter provider, ACI Jet, , announced today that it has joined the Air Charter Safety Foundation’s (ACSF) Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP). The ASAP program provides a process and platform for flight crew members to voluntarily self-report actual or potential safety risk without the worry of retaliation.
At its core, the program seeks to gain as much insight into the real world of flight operations at every level and to encourage open discussion for the creation and improvement of training and flight policies and procedures. ASAP provides a systematic approach for employees of aviation companies to promptly identify and correct potential safety hazards. To accomplish this objective, ACI Jet joined the ACSF ASAP program, which holds the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the FAA.
“ASAP is yet another layer on top of our already robust safety management system,” stated Kellee Valentine, Vice President of Flight Operations. “Safety management is the part of flying, fixing and fueling airplanes that the end user knows little about, but that fills most of our workdays. Our customers are counting on us doing so on their behalf.”
William Borgsmiller, CEO of ACI Jet, added: “While new technologies are becoming available to evaluate in real time everything from aircraft performance to the flight characteristics and behaviors of our crew members, it is their first-hand experiences that provide the most value. We want them to speak up, and this program is about giving them a non-threatening venue to do so, without the fear of reprisal."

This objective of the ASAP is to encourage air carrier and repair station employees to voluntarily report safety information that may be critical to identifying potential precursors to accidents or incidents. Under ASAP, corrective actions are based on a non-disciplinary approach to flight safety.
