A WORD FROM OUR CEO
Since 1994, ACASS has been empowering leaders and visionaries to chart their courses, expand their horizons, and shape their destinies. We live to get you where you want to be, in every sense of that phrase. No matter how much we grow, personal relationships and hands-on involvement will always be the heart and soul of our business. I invite you to contact me or any other member of the ACASS team to explore how we can help you own your journey®.
Results you'll like. People to match.
Life is too short and the world is too big to work with people you don't genuinely enjoy having along on your journey. Nor should you have to choose between people you want to work with and people who deliver the results you want. At ACASS, we pride ourselves not only on having some of the most experienced and capable people in all of business aviation, but also on having some of the very nicest. We like to think of it as world-class capability complemented by distinctively Canadian cordiality.
How We Work
Obviously, our clients seek us out and stay with us for the results we deliver. But having faith in the consistency of those results requires an understanding of the culture, philosophies, and processes that drive who we are and what we do. After 25 years in business, we have established several imperatives for consistent success.
Hire the Best
You cannot build a great house without a strong foundation. We recruit from all over the world and hire the very best and most experienced talent in the business aviation industry. This means finding people that have not only the skill set and knowledge to deliver superior results, but also the character, temperament, and professionalism to deliver a client service experience second to none.
Cultivate the right culture
Yes, bottom line results are important. But we do not believe results and virtue are mutually exclusive. On the contrary, we consider values like integrity, accountability, and humility to be integral to our success. That's why we insist that everyone at ACASS adheres to a carefully considered set of fundamental values and shares a common sense of purpose and culture.
Listen, learn, innovate
When you've been doing something successfully for a quarter of a century, it might be tempting to slip into an "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality. But we believe our success is a direct result of rejecting that mentality. Instead, we constantly listen to our clients to understand their ever-evolving needs. Then, we develop new and constantly better ways to answer them.
Empower you to own your journey®
Ultimately, everyone at ACASS is focused on and committed to one thing: empowering you to own your journey®. Those three words are the driving philosophy behind everything we do. It means liberating you from the endless business aviation obstacles and complications that would otherwise keep you from getting where you want to be, both literally and in a much more meaningful sense as well.
IS-BAO Stage 3 Registration
We are among a select group of aircraft operators worldwide to be issued an IS-BAO Stage 3 registration by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC). The International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) is a stringent and highly regarded international standard for operational excellence, safety and professional best practices. The Stage 3 registration verifies that Safety Management System (SMS) activities are fully integrated into ACASS’s aircraft management operations and that a positive safety culture is consistently sustained.
Safety Management System
The cornerstone of IS-BAO is the Safety Management System (SMS), a set of tools and procedures designed to help business aircraft operators proactively identify and manage risks to enhance safety throughout the operation. ACASS is at the forefront of SMS compliance support and implementation. ACASS has ensured SMS compliance for a vast range of aircraft types in all regions of the world, including complex situations and particularly challenging emerging markets. We are well prepared for virtually any condition and circumstance.
Argus Gold Rated Since 2013
ACASS has been audited by ARGUS® International and certified to meet all current Gold Rating requirements, including, but not limited to, maintaining complete, current, and accurate data in the ARGUS CHEQ system suitable for producing an ARGUS TripCHEQ report. We requested this audit to give you an extra level of confidence and assurance in the uncompromising safety standards we demand of all ACASS-handled crew, ground staff, and aircraft.
