Terry Yeomans, IS-BAH Programme Director
Onward and Upward – As we all continue to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic and develop effective means to ‘live with’ this and other emerging health risks, the business aviation sector continues to expand. Many of us are now challenged with doing more to keep up with this increased activity but with fewer resources. This environment makes risk management and mitigation more important than ever before.
Your participation in these voluntary international standards is admirable. Your efforts and passion for safety is extremely important to your organization and to the business aviation industry.
SEE THE LATEST INCIDENT DATA
Many thanks to those who have submitted reports confidentially to firstname.lastname@example.org. The discrete email address allows anyone to send sanitized incident/event and near miss information. Once collected, de-identified reports, recommendations and solutions are shared with the IS-BAH community, so we all get better. Keep it coming!
As you know, the business aviation sector has seen a positive rebound in the past 12 months and operators are busier than ever. The increased activity and work force challenges reinforce the need for risk management and safety diligence from all of us. We are excited to launch this collaborative newsletter and encourage IS-BAO operators to seek out IS-BAH Registered Ground Handlers and FBOs whenever you can.

The cooperation between IBAC and DSAC is intended to raise the safety bar and to make Ramp Inspections faster and more efficient for everyone.
