Magellan Jets is proud to be a leader in safety, working to raise standards not just for our guests but for the entire private aviation industry. Just how involved is our company leadership in safety standard-bearing? As announced via a press release on the ACSF website, our Chief Operating Officer, Todd Weeber, has been named as the new Air Charter Safety Foundation Chair.
The Air Charter Safety Foundation is a non-profit aviation safety organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., founded in 2008 to lead and support the advancement of the highest aviation safety standards. Magellan Jets was the first private jet broker in the world to be named to the ACSF. The foundation made the announcement welcoming changes to their staff and Board of Governors on July 5, 2022.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to take on this leadership position and work together with our Executive Committee, Board of Governors and Advisory Board to continue to execute ACSF’s strategic and inclusive vision for the future of aviation safety,” Weeber said of his appointment as ACSF Board Chair.
