Students and Air Charter Service
Students have been integral to the success of Air Charter Service since the company was founded in 1990 as a basement startup. To help pay the bills in the early days, founder Chris Leach and his wife, Tina, rented out a room to a boarder. By chance the tenant was Justin Bowman, a university student who, in the words of Chris Leach, had an “encyclopedic knowledge of aircraft.” Justin took an internship with the budding company, and eventually went on to become CEO of Air Charter Service.
ACS’s Business Development Director, Lloyd Robinson, also started his career as an intern. After an internship in 2004, his career trajectory took him from assistant to Trainee Cargo Broker to Director of Business Development. “Over the past 13 years I have seen the company go from strength to strength,” Lloyd explains. “ACS has grown from a team of 30 to a company with over 400 employees, and offices across the globe.”.
In the words of David Lewis, a former Intern and now Search Marketing Executive, “Only a few months into the placement I knew I wanted to come back and be part of the growth of ACS after I finished my final year. This is a testament to the positive atmosphere and excellent working environment at ACS.”
Student Grants and Research Support
We offer a variety of opportunities to support aviation students at all points in their academic careers, namely:
- Aviation scholarships of up to $5,000 for students creating groundbreaking research for a scientific journal. ACS will select winners based on the study’s potential impact on the future of aviation, as well as the caliber of the publication.
- Up to $500 in support for students wishing to publish their research on the ACS website. The ACS team can enrich your academic research through our expertise and access to valuable intelligence on private aviation, including on private aviation traffic throughout the United States and Europe.
- Up to $500 to support existing research for publication, depending on the innovation of research and its importance to the future of global aviation.
