Pentastar Enrolls in Air Charter Safety Foundation’s Aviation Safety Action Program 

Pentastar Aviation has enrolled in Air Charter Safety Foundation’s (ACSF) voluntary Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP). Committed to delivering the highest standards of safety and service excellence to their customers, Pentastar joined the ACSF in May 2018 and is taking part in ASAP to further this commitment.

“The focus of every employee at Pentastar is on the safety and security of our passengers. It is the cornerstone of our entire operation,” said Robert Rufli, Pentastar Aviation Vice President & Director of Flight Operations. “Through active participation in the ASAP, our pilots contribute important safety-related information that may identify precursors to aviation incidents, thereby enabling identification of any potential risks in our operations and the development and implementation of appropriate mitigations.  The ASAP fosters a voluntary, cooperative, non-punitive environment for the reporting of safety-of-flight concerns.”

The ASAP encourages employees of certificate holders or other operators to voluntarily report safety information that may otherwise go unreported, and may be critical to identifying potential precursors to incidents. The information submitted is analyzed for safety-related concerns, root cause analysis, and development and implementation of corrective action, which the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has determined is essential to further reducing the incident rate.

Besides membership in the ACSF and voluntary participation in ASAP, Pentastar Aviation utilizes a robust Safety Management System, has a well-documented Emergency Response Plan, and has earned many other aviation safety designations.
