Air Charter Service Private Jet Charter Global Leader Through the Ages


ACS Founder and Chairman Chris Leach turned a basement startup into a multinational private jet charter company. Here's the story of Air Charter Service through the ages.

From the very beginning, Chris had aviation in his blood. His story began at London Stansted Airport, where his parents lived while his father worked as a pilot. The story goes that one day, Chris’ father’s flight was coming in with a failed engine. A difficult landing was expected. “The fire engine came out and (my mother) went into labor. Whether that’s true or not, I don’t know. So I was born on an airfield. As a consequence of that, I was just born into aviation.” After finishing school, Chris spent years working at Saturn Airways and Transamerica Airlines, gaining experience in diverse aspects of aviation. Throughout it all, he enjoyed the sense of adventure. “It wasn’t work to me. It never has been, frankly.”
