Pentastar Aviation, a leader in the world of business aviation, has announced their Stage 1 registration under the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH). IS-BAH, developed by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and the National Air Transportation Association (NATA), is a set of global industry best practices for business aviation ground handlers.
IS-BAH Stage 1 certification is a voluntary program that provides requirements for the operation of a Fixed Based Operation (FBO). It confirms the FBO’s Safety Management System (SMS) infrastructure is established and that safety management activities are appropriately targeted. Achieving certification also requires that organizations review their current systems, programs and procedures, and current strengths and weaknesses in order to set a higher standard.
