Alexandria, VA, August 7, 2012 - The Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) is pleased to announce that Executive Jet Management (EJM) of Cincinnati, Ohio has renewed its status on the ACSF Industry Audit Standard (IAS) Registry. EJM recently completed an IAS audit and maintains "Registered" status with the ACSF.
"By renewing its status on the IAS Registry, EJM has demonstrated its commitment to high standards," said ACSF President Bryan Burns. "We congratulate them on their continued dedication, commitment and support of our standard."
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.
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 by clicking here.
Supporting materials are available here. Operators interested in more information about the audit process should contact Russ Lawton at 1-888-SAFE-135 (888-723-3135).
