Sirio S.p.A announced it has successfully achieved renewal of the Stage 3 registration for the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO™), which it now holds continuously since 2015. The International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations, developed by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and its member associations, is a recommended voluntary code of best practices designed to help flight operations all over the world achieve high levels of safety and professionalism in their operations. IS-BAO Stage 3 is achieved when the operator verifies that safety management activities are fully integrated into the operator’s business and that a positive safety culture is being sustained.

“The achievement of IS-BAO Stage 3 has considerably enhanced our Safety Management System, teamwork, and personal growth,” commented Pier Carlo BUSATO, Sirio Accountable Manager, and Tom ENGELHARD, Sirio CEO, added, “IS-BAO is the business aviation standard recognized around the world and we are very proud of this accomplishment, it is a testament to our team’s commitment to safety and their ability to work together to establish a strong safety culture. For the last 37 years, safety was at the core of everything we do, and the renewal of Stage 3 registration again demonstrates our uncompromising dedication to safety, operational excellence and professionalism to our clients and our colleagues.”
