“The European, African and Middle Eastern markets are vital to ACS’ success, and we are also expanding into South America”, Mr Milford said.  “With Australia’s geographic location and time zone, it makes sense having an office in Europe, and Ireland was the obvious choice given the pro-business environment and highly skilled aviation specialists located there.  Captain Michael Dalton heads our office in Ireland and is highly respected in the aviation industry.”
