The International Business Aviation Council announced FlightSafety International has joined as an IBAC Industry Partner. The alliance between the two organizations began more than a decade ago when they co-developed a series of e-learning courses on the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) and Safety Management Systems, hosted by FlightSafety. IBAC welcomes the global training company as the latest Industry Partner. 

Kurt Edwards, IBAC Director General commented, “We are honored to have FlightSafety International join us as an Industry Partner and excited to expand our working relationship with them. Their dedication to business aviation safety and education is uncompromising, and we welcome their support in our endeavors to further advocate for business aviation and promote safety at the global level.” 

“The partnership with IBAC and their Progressive stage 3 initiative is fully aligned with FlightSafety International’s mission of ensuring our clients are prepared to handle any situation they may face while flying the most precious cargo, people.  We are excited to leverage the power of collaboration with IBAC and their members to protect the lives and livelihoods of those we train,” Richard Meikle, Executive Vice President, Safety at FlightSafety stated. 

FlightSafety International is a global aviation training company and supplier of flight simulators, visual systems and displays to commercial, government and military organizations. The company provides training for pilots, technicians, and other aviation professionals from 167 countries and independent territories. 

The co-developed e-learning courses hosted by FlightSafety consist of a custom IS-BAO library that includes more than 15 safety subjects. Designed for operations that are IS-BAO-registered or working toward IS-BAO registration, the library is a valuable tool to help reinforce an organization’s safety culture.

Historically, participation in IBAC has been limited to national and regional business associations, but now business aviation manufacturers, service providers, corporate flight departments, and charter operators can demonstrate leadership in business aviation and get involved with IBAC as an Industry Partner or Operator Affiliate. Organizations wishing to participate in one of the new membership groups must also be a member of at least one of the 15 IBAC member associations.
