ASD Avia Consulting is pleased to announce that Argos VIP and its entire network of Fixed Base Operation (FBOs) facilities across Italy have chosen ASD Avia Consulting to handle their IS-BAH™ Standard (International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling) accreditation from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC). Argos VIP operates 15 FBO facilities in Italy, all of which operate under one unified safety and quality management system.

The Auditing of each FBO will take place within the next months, starting with the Station in Milan Linate in November, 2017.

The International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) is a set of global industry best practices for business aviation ground handlers, which features at its core a safety management system (SMS). IS-BAH follows the structure of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) Program and incorporates the NATA Safety 1st Ground Audit Program. IS-BAH is the global industry standard for handlers and operators around the world to meet the coming SMS requirements from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

IS-BAH offers Fixed Based Operators (FBO) and Business Aircraft Handling Agents (BAHA) a scalable, industry-developed code of best practice centered around Safety Management System (SMS) principles adopted by ICAO and other operations-critical industries. Conforming to these standards and recommended practices is voluntary.

Terry Yeomans, program director of IS-BAH said:"The IS-BAH™ programme welcomes the approach by Argos VIP and its full network across Italy to implement the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling. We look forward to working with Argos VIP and ASD Avia Consulting to bring the industry standards to the fore in Italy and further expand the reach of the IS-BAH™ globally",

"We are very proud that Argos VIP, the leading FBO in Italy and as one of those companies who ensure its clients the highest standard of safety and providing a premium service thru all its FBOs, has chosen ASD Avia Consulting to implement the IS-BAH Standards and to support the organisation in improving the high standards in safety and quality” said ASD Avia Consulting managing director Amir Dadgar.

“We introduced the IS-BAH registration program in May during the EBACE show in Geneva to Argos VIP and the company made clear its commitment to safety as its first priority.  The IS-BAH certification process ensures just that. It guarantees that the FBO operations are performed following the highest of standards.”

ASD Avia Consulting is an independent Audit company specialized in Part-145 Audits for Maintenance Organization, Audits for FBO and Operators. Since November 2015 the consultancy has been authorized by IBAC to carry out IS-BAH Audits.

For the last few years ASD Aviation Consulting has supported several FBOs in complying with IS-BAH registration requirements and assisted clients in fulfilling the safety and quality standards.
