Century milestone for IS-BAH
IBAC has announced its IS-BAH programme has reached 100 registered handler locations since it was introduced in July 2014.
The IS-BAH follows the structure of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) programme and incorporates the NATA Safety 1st Ground Audit Programme.
IS-BAH is the global industry standard for business aircraft handling agents and fixed-base operators around the world.
“We are excited to reach this milestone of 100 IS-BAH operator locations, and I am very proud of our team that made this possible.”
Terry Yeomans, programme director for IS-BAH, said: “We are excited to reach this milestone of 100 IS-BAH operator locations, and I am very proud of our team that made this possible. We are experiencing substantial growth in the programme right now. I see our momentum continuing as more FBOs and handling agents embrace the code of industry developed best practices as our sector recognises the value of a positive safety culture to their core business.”
IS-BAH combines voluntary best practices for business aircraft ground handling companies with robust Safety Management Systems (SMS).
IBAC plays an active role within the ICAO ground handling task force that is currently developing ground handling guidance documentation for ICAO country members’ consideration.
