AviationManuals Earns IS-BAH PSA Recognition

AviationManuals broadens its long-standing relationship with IBAC by expanding support for FBOs seeking IS-BAH certification.  

ROCKVILLE, MD, August 23, 2022 – AviationManuals, the leading provider of procedure development services and Safety Management System (SMS) software, has received IS-BAH (International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling) PSA (Programme Support Affiliate) recognition. By becoming a PSA, AviationManuals has expanded its support solutions for FBOs to include those who wish to meet the IS-BAH standard or seek IS-BAH certification.

“FBOs are busy managing their own businesses and may have limited resources for figuring out SMS on their own,” said Mark Baier, CEO of AviationManuals. “ Many operators can benefit from our assistance to get them prepared for IS-BAH certification,” Baier said.

“While we have always helped FBOs with compliance and safety, we can now also support operators as a recognized PSA with IBAC,” said Kevin Honan, Senior Operations Advisor at AviationManuals. “We can assist FBOs in understanding, complying with, and maintaining the standards of the IS-BAH Program.”

Developed by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) in 2014, the IS-BAH standard uses SMS to help FBOs manage workplace safety and prevent aircraft handling incidents and workplace injuries.

“IS-BAH certification is quickly becoming a popular way for FBOs to demonstrate their quality and professionalism,” continued Baier. “We want to support our clients looking to achieve this endorsement by providing them with our years of extensive operational support and SMS experience.”
