The International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) is a Council of business aviation associations from around the world. Governance is established through the IBAC Governing Board, with representation from each of the Member Associations. The Board meets twice per year to establish business aviation policies and priority activities for the industry. Ongoing activity of the Council is managed by an IBAC Secretariat consisting of the Director General, assisted by a staff of experienced specialty managers responsible for ICAO Liaison, Safety Standards, Regulatory Affairs and Office Management.
IBAC represents the interests of business aviation worldwide. IBAC is an International Non-Governmental Organization (INGO) with permanent observer status with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the UN Specialized Agency for aviation matters. IBAC’s Secretariat is based in the ICAO headquarters building in Montreal Canada. IBAC, in coordination with Member Associations, also produces material of direct value to flight departments, such as the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), Safety Management Tool Kit, SMS eLearning training and the Aircrew Identification Card.
