Talon Air Inc., a worldwide leader in aircraft management and charter, announced today that it has obtained registration of their International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO).
The Parent of the IS-BAO effort is the International Business Aviation Council, which developed it as a code of best practices for the benefit of flight operations departments in the rapidly growing business sector. It servers as a benchmark of professionalism and standardization for the conduct of flight operations departments and addresses such items as an operator’s Safety Management System (SMS ), while at the same time allowing an outside critique of strengths and weaknesses of the flight department operation procedures. The SMS includes a strategy and set of tools that enable an organization to systematically manage every facet of its operation to identify safety and security hazards and associated risks to mitigate them. Safety is the core of the effort, but not the only aspect for review. Business practices, among others, are also examined. IS-BAO gives Talon Air a known and true industry standard of safety which is accepted worldwide.
“The successful audit and registration of IS-BAO for Talon Air further defines our commitment to safety, our customers and the business aviation community. All of our employees are committed to delivering the highest level of service. Completing IS-BAO validates our commitment”, said Vice President of Operations, Jason Sanders.
With IS-BAO, Wyvern Gold, and ARG/US Platinum accreditations, our highly experienced management team and dedicated on-board cockpit and cabin crew can continue to provide unparalleled services worldwide in today’s business aircraft charter environment.
