Jet Aviation announced today that it has received International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) Stage 2 safety registration for its two newest FBO locations in the USA.
With these new certificates, all 11 Jet Aviation FBOs in the USA are Stage 2 registered. The company currently operates 30 IS-BAH-registered FBOs around the world.
Launched in 2014 by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), the IS-BAH registration process was established to ensure handling systems, processes and practices meet rigorous safety and security standards.
“Congratulations to the Jet Aviation Scottsdale and Bozeman locations for achieving IS-BAH Stage 2,” said Terry Yeomans, IBAC’s director of the IS-BAH Program.
“We’ve been working with Jet Aviation for many years now and compliment them on placing such high value on safe operations. We look forward to continuing our relationship for many years to come.”
Ronald Schneider, Jet Aviation’s director and GM of Bozeman, said: “We are delighted to have our robust safety measures recognized by the industry.
“As the highest international safety standard for ground handling, this is a great achievement for a job well done by the entire Bozeman team.” Schneider further stated that his continual advice to the team is, “preparation is the key to success.”
Jet Aviation strengthened its global customer offering with the acquisition of the Bozeman FBO in September 2020, just months before opening its 8,500 square-foot FBO and 30,000 square-foot hangar facility at Scottsdale Airport in December 2020.
The following year, in December 2021, Jet Aviation Scottsdale won Aviation International News’ “Top Flight” award for Best New FBO.
Tim Vallowe, Jet Aviation’s director and GM of Scottsdale, said: “Safety has been a top priority for us since launching operations just over a year ago. IS-BAH Stage 2 registration is a significant accomplishment as it shows our customers that we are committed to the highest standards in all that we do to ensure their experience is effortless at every touchpoint.”
