During a session yesterday at EBACE, IBAC formally unveiled its new International Standard for Business Aviation Handling (IS-BAH), which outlines a formal safety standard for FBOs and ground-handling businesses. IS-BAH mirrors IS-BAO, the safety standard for business aircraft operators, according to International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) IS-BAO director James Cannon. “It represents FBO and handling agency industry best practices, and integrates the principles of a safety management system [SMS].”

Just as IBAC’s International Standard for Business Aviation Operations (IS-BAO) has brought a formalized safety standard to the operation of private aircraft over the past 12 years, so, too, will IS-BAH for the FBO and ground-handling businesses, say the program’s organizers.
