The ACSF Industry Audit Standard (IAS) was designed to be a single, comprehensive standard for the on-demand air charter and fractional aircraft ownership industry. The IAS comprehensively evaluates both an air charter operator’s or fractional aircraft ownership company’s SMS and its FAA regulatory compliance.
Read testimonials from operators that have gone through the ACSF audit program:
“We are proud to have successfully completed the ACSF audit and to be recognized as the first operator to do so. The process provided a valuable review of our regulatory compliance procedures and the health of our safety management system. Our registration demonstrates the continuing efforts of all our employees to develop higher standards, and is a natural next step beyond our ISO registrations of the past. Not only will Jet Solutions be proud to market our Industry Audit Standard (IAS) registration, we encourage other operators to meet the audit standards. In the future, we will look for IAS registration when contracting operators to support our supplemental lift needs. Their registration will let us know exactly the standards to which they operate.”

It was an enlightening process and a team-building experience that I have not seen before in our company or industry.
