IBAC Awards SSA Certificate to AeroEx

The International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) has awarded the Support Services Affiliation (SSA) certificate to AeroEx (Booth 1763). SSA providers can help other organizations with International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations registration and other IBAC programs.

Last year, the IBAC upgraded the qualifications and training required for organizations to be designated with an SSA certificate. The requirements include an application to include a description of how IS-BAO auditing services will be kept separate from IS-BAO implementation assistance. Other requirements are that an individual be appointed as IS-BAO representative and, according to the IBAC, “the organization’s IS-BAO representative has attended the Fundamentals of IS-BAO and Auditor Accreditation workshops within the 12 months prior to the application for support affiliate recognition.”

In addition to IS-BAO registration, AeroEx specializes in assisting aviation organizations with EASA compliance. The Buchs, Switzerland-based firm is also expanding, offering its services to companies based in Asia and the Middle East. AeroEx services include, according to the company, “training and seminars, assessments, gap-analyses and audits, project management, manual preparation and updates as well as risk and safety management.”

On May 31, AeroEx is sponsoring the “Finance, Risk and Liability in Aviation” forum in Singapore. The forum is being organized by the Nanyang Technological University and the University of St. Gallen Center of Aviation Competence. ­
