IS-BAO Registered IS-BAO is the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations and is the equivalent of ISO 9001 for flight departments. Operators must pass a rigorous third-party audit prior to receiving IS-BAO Registration. Implementation of the IS-BAO standard is difficult. It requires the development of programs, systems, processes and procedures to meet safety and security standards. These organizational, maintenance, operational, training and security requirements are based on the ISO 9000 family of quality assurance standards and industry best practices. The foundation of IS-BAO is the development of a Safety Management System to assess and mitigate risks encountered in flight operations. Validation of the entire process is completed by an independent audit. IS-BAO organizations must foster a culture of excellence that strives for continuous improvement.
