Air Partner Joins Air Charter Safety Foundation
Alliance Underscores Company’s Deep Commitment to Private Air Safety Standards
Fort Lauderdale, FL – Air Partner, a global leader in private aviation, today announced it is the newest company to join the Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF). Along with its safety consultancy division, Baines Simmons, Air Partner is dedicated to the ACSF’s vision of further promoting and enabling the highest levels of safety in personal and business aviation.
“Safety is at the core of all our services, and as we have grown and evolved over time, we have continued to forge relationships with third parties who share our commitment to ensuring safety in the skies,” said Seth Rotman, vice president of Private Jets for Air Partner. “To truly understand the scope of safety in private aviation and be able to deliver quality service that travelers can trust is a continuous effort across our offices globally, which is why having the support of the ACSF reaffirms that safety and risk management is our top priority.”
Clients’ safety is Air Partner’s highest priority, which is why the company’s Quality Management System far exceeds FAA requirements and industry norms. Air Partner evaluates the safety, operational performance and financial stability for every air charter operator and crew that it uses. Additionally, if a client needs a tailored safety program, Air Partner is there to meet every specific need.
Since 2015, Air Partner has worked to round out its aviation safety consultancy, acquiring three leaders within various sectors of the field – Baines Simmons (2015), the company’s safety consultancy division; Clockwork Research (2016), managing its fatigue risk management division; and SafeSkys (2017), focused on environmental and air traffic control issues.
Baines Simmons, a world leader in aviation regulations, compliance, and safety, is a trusted advisor to more than 750 aviation organizations and more than 40 aviation authorities, helping to advance best practices, shape safety thinking and drive continuous improvement to safety performance. This acquisition provided Air Partner with the tools to implement training courses, including safety management, human factors and error management, as well as regulatory compliance.
With its acquisition of Clockwork Research, a leading fatigue management consultancy, as well as SafeSkys, a leading provider of environmental and air traffic control services, Air Partner further expanded its capabilities, scale and international presence in aviation safety. Clockwork Research uses innovative system modeling to ensure pilots and other essential personnel are getting the necessary sleep to carry out their tasks effectively and safely.
