Texas-based Tac Air (Booth 2956) has become the first large FBO chain to achieve Stage 2 registration under the International Standard for Business Aviation Handling (IS-BAH) at all of its bases. In 2016, the company earned Stage 1 registration for all 14 of its locations, and it successfully earned the next level in the voluntary safety management system (SMS)-based program of industry best practices, within the specified two years. This week at NBAA 2018, the company was awarded 14 certificates of registration by IBAC, which administers the program.
“The International Business Aviation Council congratulates Tac Air in achieving IS-BAH Stage 2 registration by demonstrating its implementation of safety management and risk mitigation,” said IS-BAH program director Terry Yeomans. The certificates are awarded to locations that have demonstrated conformity to the safety practices as confirmed by a three-stage external audit conducted by an IBAC accredited auditor.
“Tac Air is committed to operating at the highest level of safety and is continually seeking ways to improve its operations,” said company vice president and COO Christian Sasfai. “Achievement of Stage 2 IS-BAH certification is confirmation of this commitment.”
