ACSF announces new Director of Safety

The Air Charter Safety Foundation announced the promotion of Alyssa Sleight from Programs Manager to Director of Safety. The ACSF is a non-profit organization that supports high safety standards for over 300 aviation-focused businesses, charter and fractional operators. ACSF President Bryan Burns said Sleight has focused work experience, aviation industry knowledge and education that have led to the advancement. "Along with that, Alyssa's learned from the best—most notably the ACSF's first Director of Safety, Russ Lawton," Burns said. "With her tenure at the ACSF and commitment to learning new skills, she's a natural fit for this promotion." As Director of Safety, Sleight will expand the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP), which is offered in conjunction with the FAA. She will assist ACSF members to improve their operation with flight data monitoring (FDM) and the newly required safety management system (SMS) standards, per the FAA. In her role as the ACSF Assistant Director of Safety and Programs Manager for the organization's many safety initiatives, like the ASAP. Recently, Sleight participated in many of the Foundation's monthly ASAP Event Review Committee meetings and organized the back-office logistics of the ASAP training and operations, like ASAP data collection. She has also provided technical support to ACSF members as well as the FAA and most recently renewed nearly all ASAP Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) agreements. "The ACSF has a unique take on ASAP in comparison to the rest of the industry," Sleight said. "Since joining the ACSF, I've learned under my mentor, Russ Lawton, how to manage the relationship between the ACSF, the FAA and various ASAP participants." "I'm looking forward to creating a more standardized and efficient means of conducting the third-party ASAP manager," she said. "Likewise, I'll be working to incorporate more effective ways of getting operators trained and reports submitted. I see a lot of opportunity for enhancing the role and processes related to the Safety Director position." Sleight is a licensed pilot and has a BS in Aeronautics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, in Daytona Beach, Florida. She is proficient with SMS platforms that house ASAP data, including the ACSF QuickBase server.
