Bakersfield Jet Center, located at Meadows Field Airport, Bakersfield, CA, has successfully completed an International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) registration.

A full service FBO, the company has been owned and operated by the Loyd family since 1958 and offers aircraft fuelling, maintenance, parts, storage, charter, aircraft sales and management.

“At Bakersfield Jet Center, our team believes that safety and service go hand-in-hand which provides the foundation for a great customer experience,” said Steven Loyd, President. “With an internal safety core anchored by the standards within the IS-BAH registration programme, we are able to provide the safest operating environment possible for all our stakeholders.”

IS-BAH was established through the efforts of the International Aviation Business Council (IBAC) and the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) as a global code to identify and promote the use of industry best practices by means of a progressive Safety Management System (SMS) for both FBOs and Business Aircraft Handling Agencies (BAHA). It follows the format and structure of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) program and incorporates many of the guidelines of the NATA Safety 1st Ground Audit Standard and elements of NATA’s Safety 1st Programme.
