The International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) recently appointed the 2021/2022 International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) Standards Board, welcoming three new members. They are Kevin Donnelly from Jet Aviation, Dawit Lemma from Krimson Aviation, and Benjamin Hammond from Duncan Aviation.
According to IBAC, the IS-BAH Standards Board oversees content of the IS-BAH standard and suggests improvements or identifies other changes. A voluntary program, IS-BAH serves to establish best practices and enable FBOs/handlers to conform to those, in addition to the ICAO SMS framework. The program has registered more than 246 locations worldwide since its inception in 2014.
“The Standards Board consists of active professionals from around the world in the ground-handling service provider sector, demonstrating these are truly industry-driven standards,” said Terry Yeomans, IS-BAH program director. “The ongoing support of these leaders is promoting safer operations for us all. “
The new members join a board that also includes chair Allison Markey, of Wyvern; vice-chair Marc Pieters, of Jet Aviation EuMEA; Joseph Azzaz, of Sky Valet Golf de St-Tropez Airport; Chris Barrow, of Hong Kong Business Aviation Centre; Jennifer Bartenstein, of Signature Flight Support; Alain Champannois, representing his own business; Gary Dietz, of AT&T Flight Operations; Dr. Benjamin Goodheart, of Magpie|Human Safety Systems; Paula Kraft, of Da Vinci/Tastefully Yours; Bob Schick, of TAC Air; Lou Sorrentino, of AvMASSi; and Kyle Quinn, of Modern Aviation.
