Nomad Aviation has received the Registration Certificate for the successful implementation of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), which is issued by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC).
The IS-BAO certification was launched in 2002 by the business aviation community and was designed to promote the use of high quality operating practices for international business aircraft operations by establishing a framework for effective safety and operational processes. It provides tools to perform gap analyses to facilitate the implementation of best practices and delivering a Safety Management System (SMS) appropriate to the operational profile.
IS-BAO is based on the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards that prepare the operator for domestic and international operations. It is applicable to both large and small operators. The registration certificate issued upon successful completion of an audit serves as proof of conformance to key ICAO standards.
“We are proud to be the holder of the Registration Certificate. The program centers on the Safety Management System (SMS) and leads our company from establishing principles, to achieving an effective SMS, and eventually attaining a risk-averse, generative safety culture“, says Thomas Koehli, Nomad Aviation’s CEO and adds: ”The program audits are conducted every two years and ensure conformance with the standards and recommended practices. The audits also provide valuable feedback to Nomad Aviation.”
