Jet Aviation Flight Services achieves IS-BAO Stage 3 certification

April 17, 2014

Jet Aviation Flight Services successfully advances to International Standard – Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) stage 3 certification from the International Business Aviation Council.

IS-BAO requires flight departments to analyze processes in day-to-day operations and provides managers with tools to foster an environment where safety, efficiency and a commitment to continuous improvement are integrated into all operations.  A performance-based assessment, IS-BAO stage 3 is the final step in a rigorous five-year process. This certification specifically recognizes compliance with the highest IS-BAO standards and practices following an in-depth audit and rating of the Safety Management System (SMS), including a detailed analysis of operational performance data. 

“Jet Aviation is proud to join the small and distinguished group of operators worldwide who have successfully earned IS-BAO stage 3 certification,” said Don Haloburdo, vice president and general manager, Jet Aviation Flight Services.  “Stage three verifies that safety management activities are fully integrated into our business and that a positive safety culture is being sustained.  Attaining the highest level of IS-BAO accreditation acknowledges Jet Aviation’s commitment to safety, quality and continuous improvement.”
