Hillsboro Aviation is honored to announce it has acheived Stage 3 accreditation from the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), the most rigorous and advanced level of IS-BAO accreditation possible.
The IS-BAO program, developed by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), is an internationally recognized set safety standards for business aviation, focused on developing a code of best practices for business aviation operators who utilize safety management systems (SMS) for risk assessment and mitigation.
Stage 3 accreditation verifies Hillsboro’s safety management activities are fully integrated into the business and a positive safety culture is being sustained. Through an in-depth audit, IS-BAO determined Hillsboro’s safety management system (SMS) is fully integrated throughout the company and is supported by on-going improvement processes that foster a sustainable and proactive safety culture throughout the company. The accreditation is maintained through voluntary biennial audits to ensure continuous adherence to IS-BAO standards.
Hillsboro Aviation received IS-BAO Stage 2 accreditation in 2016, which determined Hillsboro’s safety management activities were appropriately targeted and safety risks were being effectively managed.
