The Air Charter Association (The ACA), who we are proud members of have developed a standard Broker Qualification covering all the key knowledge and understanding needed by a competent and professional air charter broker.
In November two of our senior charter brokers took part in the Level 1 Foundation Knowledge session in London. There was a variety of delegates that attended from across the business aviation industry, including FBOs, ground handlers and insurers.
The ACA hosted its first Level 2 Air Charter Broker Qualification training course at London Stansted Airport. Harrods Aviation turned its FBO business lounge into a classroom for the day.
Delegates also enjoyed airside tours, including a tour with Titan Airways to look at the Airbus 321 Neo and the team were impressed with the fuel efficiency and operational range of the aircraft.
The Level 2 training course focused on operational management and the value provided by air charter brokers to both clients and operators in supporting the smooth running of charter flights.
Our senior charter brokers took part in the The final Level 3 Broker Qualification which took place at the RAF Club near Hyde Park in April.
The Level 3 training course focused on advanced broker skills, managing challenges, and developing client relationships.
We are proud that our brokers both passed their assessment and have now received Qualified Broker status. They are two of only 30 delegates from across the UK and Europe who have completed the qualification.
One of our senior brokers says: “I was thrilled to take part in the recent training with The ACA and enjoyed meeting peers in the industry. The course was detailed, informative and beneficial and I am proud that I have achieved Qualified Broker status, one of only 30 in the UK and Europe. I value The ACA and how they fully support standards and regulations to protect our industries reputation from rogue brokers. Here at Admiral Jet, our clients are at the forefront of everything we do, and the course and workshops cemented how we do things is the right way”
We appreciate the importance of training for personal development and due to the success of our recent attendees we will be sending all brokers on future courses. We will now also ensure that all quotes will be overseen by a Qualified Broker.
