Founder and CEO of private jet charter company Magellan Jets, Joshua Hebert, has accepted the role of chairman of the Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF).
Hebert, who founded Magellan Jets in 2008 and grew it into a provider of charter, jet card and services including air ambulance flights, had previously served as vice chairman of the foundation.
“Joshua has been an invaluable vice chairman and member of the ACSF executive committee and board of governors,” said ACSF president Bryan Burns.
“With his leadership, knowledge, and creative ideas in the aviation industry, he will make an excellent chairman.”
Hebert succeeds former chairman Michael Graham, who also works as the director of flight operations safety, security, and standardization at Textron Aviation and was nominated to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
The NTSB appointment was made by the White House, who selected Graham to replace Earl Weener, with a term expiring on 31 December 2020, although this was later amended to 31 December 2025, and is currently pending in the Senate Commerce Committee.
The Air Charter Safety Foundation is an organisation providing resources for safety standards across the United States charter airplane network, by promoting, advocating for and disseminating safety information, and creating programs to further this agenda.
