Delhi-based SRC Aviation, which became the first in the world to be awarded the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handlers (IS-BAH) 1 and among the first for IS-BAH 2, has now been awarded IS-BAH 3, becoming the only organization outside North America to earn the stringent registration.
American Aero Fort Worth, an FBO at Meacham International Airport in Fort Worth, Texas, became the first FBO worldwide last year to earn the new Stage 3 safety and ground handling certificate of registration.
IS-BAH, developed by the International Business Aviation Council in concert with the National Air Transportation Association, is a set of global industry best practices for business aviation ground handlers that features at its core a safety management system.
SRC founder Bobby Chadha explained to AIN that the company underwent a rigorous audit of its best practices in safety management systems, emergency procedures, security and operating procedures, and training processes to achieve IS-BAH 3. "This also works like a self-check and keeps us from being complacent about delivering quality," Chadha added.
