The Air Charter Safety Foundation is organizing a symposium March 3-4 at the NTSB Training Center in Ashburn, Va. that will cover some timely topics for air charter and fractional operators. The Air Charter Safety Symposium will focus on safety and security concerns faced by the sector and give operators a chance to rub elbows with their peers. The event covers two full days and includes expert speakers and case analyses on safety issues of interest to charters and fractionals.

On the first day, the group will be taken through the implementation of an FAA-approved Aviation Safety Action Program by one company. There will also be a discussion led by members of the NTSB on the importance of safety management systems and the importance of convincing corporate management of their value. On the second day, the discussion gets narrowed to the ACSF's Top Ten Safety Action Items that the organization believes needs to be addressed immediately "to counter negative trends and improve the safety of operations."
