Kurt Humm, vice president of quality for Priester Aviation, said: “Our first priority is to ensure that our passengers enjoy a safe, comfortable experience. These certifications confirm that Priester Aviation operates according to the highest standards of aviation safety, well above FAA regulatory compliance.”

The ACSF certification is awarded to companies that comply to rigorous compliance and safety protocols. Priester Aviation is a founding member of ACSF and Charlie Priester, chairman of Priester Aviation, serves on the organisation’s board of governors.

The Wyvern Wingman is considered to be the gold standard in aviation safety.

“By once again earning these certifications, our clients know that our commitment to safety and quality is paramount to our business,” said Humm. “These two certifications, along with our ARGUS Platinum rating and IS-BAO certifications put us in the top one percent of charter operators who have achieved all four safety accreditations.”
