IS-BAO (International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations) was developed by the industry for the benefit of the industry. It is a code of best practices designed to help flight departments worldwide achieve a high level of safety and professionalism.
Flight Departments implementing IS-BAO may wish to obtain a Certificate of Registration from IBAC, thus demonstrating compliance to a recognized international standard.
IS-BAO is a voluntary standard and registration is voluntary; however, there may be considerable benefits to a flight department by advising Boards of Directors, regulators and insurance companies, of compliance to the international standard.
Certificates of Registration are issued by IBAC to flight departments that have demonstrated compliance through successful completion of a third party industry audit by an IBAC Accredited Auditor such as The Squadron.
