ARGUS charter broker programme gets ACSF support
The Air Charter Safety Foundation announces support for the ARGUS certied charter broker programme.
ARGUS International (ARGUS) has received the support of the Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) for its new certified charter broker programme.
Dave Hewitt, chairman for ACSF, said: “For many years, those of us familiar with the air charter industry have recognised that there is a significant variance in the overall quality, qualifications, business integrity, and financial resources of air charter brokers.”
“ACSF believes that brokers can serve an important role in the air charter industry on behalf of both clients and operators. We fully support programs such as those created by ARGUS and other reputable organisations that set and validate standards to help separate quality brokers from others,” added Hewett.
The ARGUS certified charter broker programme contains two levels of recognition, ARGUS registered and ARGUS certified.
A registered charter broker provides ARGUS with documented proof of specific requirements, and annually pledges their commitment to adhering to industry best practices and applicable regulations.
A certified charter broker will submit the same documentation and annual pledge, and additionally will undergo an on-site audit, once every two years, to prove their compliance with industry best practices and applicable regulations.
