The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today welcomed an announcement from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) regarding the evolution of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), the worldwide safety standard for business aviation operations, and the new management team named to support the program.

A task force of IBAC governing board, staff and member executives has just completed a comprehensive assessment of the structure and management processes for IS-BAO. The group worked over the past year to complete the business model review needed to meet the increasing demand for IS-BAO registration.

The IBAC task force endorsed many of the operating principles first established in 2001, but it also recommended changes to the management structure and revenue/cost models to enable the sustained growth and value of the industry standard. The business model study report can be found on the IBAC home page at ibac.org.

IBAC also announced the management team appointed to take the program to the next level:

• James Cannon, a former NBAA Board member, has been named IS-BAO program director, responsible to Director General Donald Spruston for the overall management of the expanding program.
• Sonnie Bates has been appointed IS-BAO operations manager, responsible for education and promotion and for managing a group of specialists who present workshops around the world.
• John Sheehan remains in his position as audit manager, responsible for all aspects of the certificate-of-registration audit quality assurance.
• Paul Lessard remains as IS-BAO administrator, taking on additional responsibilities related to an automated database management system.

"Jim Cannon is a highly respected business aviation veteran who brings a wealth of real-world expertise to the IBAC team, as well as experience in numerous other industry leadership posts, including NBAA's Board of Directors," said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen. "Sonnie Bates has long been recognized for his ability to strengthen an organization's focus on operations, safety, management and other issues confronting today's flight operations. Both Jim and Sonnie will be tremendous assets to the IS-BAO program."

IS-BAO was developed by the business aviation community, including NBAA Members, so that the industry would have one universally accepted global safety standard. Benefits of this industry "code of best practices" include providing a single worldwide audit standard and the promotion of internationally harmonized safety rules. Additionally, IS-BAO-registered operators increasingly receive insurance premium benefits due to the well established safety management system (SMS) built into the standard.

To date, more than 1,400 copies of the code of practice are in circulation, and over 500 business aviation operators have obtained an official certificate of registration verifying that they have successfully implemented the IS-BAO safety requirements.

IBAC – of which NBAA is a founding member – is the non-profit, non-governmental association that represents, promotes and protects the interests of business aviation in international policy and regulatory venues. For further information about IS-BAO, contact IBAC Director General Donald Spruston at dg[.]ibac.org, or visit ibac.org/.

Founded in 1947 and based in Washington, DC, the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA.org) is the leading organization for companies that rely on general aviation aircraft to help make their businesses more efficient, productive and successful. The Association represents more than 8,000 companies and provides more than 100 products and services to the business aviation community, including the NBAA Annual Meeting & Convention, the world's largest civil aviation trade show.
