Aviation training provider FlightSafety International (FSI) has joined the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) as an industry partner. Participation in IBAC previously was limited to national and regional business associations, but now business aviation manufacturers, service providers, corporate flight departments, and charter operators can join as an industry partner or operator affiliate, provided they also are a member of one of the 15 IBAC member associations.
This builds on a decade-long alliance between FSI and IBAC to co-develop e-learning courses on IS-BAO and safety management systems. “We are honored to have FlightSafety International join us as an industry partner and excited to expand our working relationship with them,” said IBAC director general Kurt Edwards. “We welcome their support in our endeavors to further advocate for business aviation and promote safety at the global level.”
The co-developed e-learning courses hosted by FlightSafety consist of a custom IS-BAO library that includes more than 15 safety subjects. The library is designed for operations that are IS-BAO-registered or working toward IS-BAO registration, providing a tool to help reinforce an organization’s safety culture.
