AviationManuals Designated as IS-BAO Programme Support Affiliate
Washington, Dec. 14, 2020 – AviationManuals has been accepted as an IS-BAO Programme Support Affiliate (PSA) from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), under the organization’s new structure. The PSA achievement comes after AviationManuals was named a Preferred Provider by IS-BAO last year and further solidifies both organizations’ close working relationship.
PSA was designed to identify vendors who support business aviation operators with implementing, seeking or maintaining registration to IBAC international standards. AviationManuals supports nearly 500 clients that utilize IS-BAO (International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations).
The confirmation of the PSA gives AviationManual’s clientele additional confidence that the counsel it provides will enable operators to achieve IS-BAO benchmarks of excellence for their aviation operations and Safety Management Systems (SMS).
“The AviationManuals’ IS-BAO program is led by subject matter expert Kevin Honan, our Senior Advisor, Operations Manuals and Emergency Response Plans,” said AviationManuals CEO Mark Baier. “He and the team do an exceptional job developing and maintaining content to support clients’ individual IS-BAO registrations.”
“In today’s busy and turbulent aviation environment, operators may need expertise and guidance with the six-step process to IS-BAO registration,” said Bennet Walsh, Director of the IS-BAO Programme. “The IS-BAO Programme Support Affiliates are vetted by our team to assure quality support from knowledgeable professionals and we congratulate AviationManuals as a new Programme Support Affiliate.”
IBAC has redesigned its affiliate program (formerly I3SA) and now designates qualified vendors as Programme Support Affiliates. PSA recognizes exceptional businesses that actively assist organizations with improved and more effective safety standards in the context of an IBAC International Standards program.
IS-BAO PSAs are required to demonstrate their ability to positively support the program during initial application and any renewal of affiliation. The goal of the PSA program is for IBAC to provide a validated list of third-party vendors that will support organizations seeking to implement the IBAC Standards Program through to registration.
