It is a code of best practices designed to help flight departments worldwide achieve a high level of safety and professionalism.This Site provides information on the benefits of IS-BAO and how to obtain a copy.In addition, the site describes the process used to keep the standard dynamic and current with new equipment and procedures.
Flight departments interested in obtaining a Certificate of Registration will find information in the audit page regarding the process for choosing a Registrar and how to apply for a Certificate. The IS-BAO audit program commenced in the fourth quarter of 2002. Since that time a number of auditors from all corners of the world have received accreditation. IBAC has awarded Certificates of Registration to many flight departments that have successfully met the IS-BAO standard as verified by an accredited auditor.
