Business aviation services provider ACASS has received its second consecutive International Standard for Business Aircraft Operators (IS-BAO) Stage 3 registration renewal from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC). The highest-level registration issued by IBAC, ACASS received its initial Stage 3 award in 2017.

“Everyone at ACASS knows how thoroughly committed we are to operational safety, but this recognition by IBAC reaffirms it for our clients and the business aviation community worldwide,” said ACASS v-p of operations Derek Holter. “Even in the midst of the major pandemic-related challenges of the last couple of years, our safety standards and practices have remained impeccable.”

Operators with Stage 3 are audited every two to three years for conformance with the standards, which emphasize continuous improvement, development of mature safety cultures, and the sharing of safety knowledge and experience with peer operators, as well as those that are developing a safety management system program.

Based in Montreal, ACASS was founded in 1994 and provides aircraft sales, acquisition, leasing, and management, aircrew staffing, and charter services.
