During the conference sessions at ACE 21, The Air Charter Association (The ACA) announced the re-introduction of their classroom training with the next Broker Qualification Level 1 course taking place in November 2021.
Julie Black, deputy chair, The ACA, says: “Training is such an important part of the work the association does to drive our priority; to set and maintain the highest standards of professionalism in the air charter market.
“We are really looking forward to the return of our broker training.”
In addition, today The ACA announced a planned expansion to its NextGen Group.
Their work has developed over the last year with initiatives including delivering careers presentations to university and college students, to showcase the wide opportunities a career in aviation can provide.
Patrick Lucy, NextGen chair, says: “After a busy year we are looking to expand the expertise and resources in the NextGen Group.
“If you have an interest or know of someone that might want to join and contribute to the future of our industry, please get in touch.”
The ACA expands its team
The ACA has grown its executive team with the addition of two new staff members. This adds new expertise to complement its non-executive board which has been expanding over the last year.
Chris Adams has joined the team as membership executive, coming from a successful career in the travel industry.
He will be responsible for growing the membership and increasing engagement and support for current members.
Mary Proctor joins the team as administrative assistant having previously worked in the logistics and shipping for manufacturing businesses. She will support the team and the board’s working groups.
Glenn Hogben, chief executive, The ACA, says: “I am delighted that we have been able to expand the team to support our strategic development plans for the Association.
“Now, more than ever, we have been able to support our members through some challenging times and Chris and Mary will enable us to continue this work and help bring the air charter industry back together.”
