Key Air Renews ACSF Industry Audit Standard Registration

June 12, 2015

Washington, DC, June 12, 2015 — The Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) is pleased to announce that Key Air, Oxford, CT, has renewed its status on the ACSF Industry Audit Standard (IAS) Registry.

“We congratulate Key Air on renewing their status on the IAS Registry,” said ACSF president Bryan Burns. “This serves to demonstrate 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.

“With nearly 30 years of experience providing aircraft management and jet charter services to our clients, the professionals at Key Air understand the key importance of participating in rigorous safety audits such as the ACSF Industry Audit Standard,” said Alan DePeters, President and CEO. “Our renewal on the ACSF Registry places us in an elite group of companies and demonstrates to our clients and partners that their safety is taken seriously and is at the core of Key Air’s values.”

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

“The vision of the ACSF is to enable on-demand charter providers and fractional program managers to achieve the highest levels of safety in the aviation industry. This goal will be achieved through:

  • Promotion of risk management programs,
  • The adoption of one common industry audit standard,
  • Dissemination of safety information and,
  • Creation of additional programs that advance the goals of the foundation.”
