TAC Air Becomes First IS-BAH Registered FBO Chain
Leadership team demonstrates commitment to best in class safety standards
DALLAS, Texas (November 16, 2016) – TAC Air, a fixed-base operator (FBO) with 14 locations across the country, today became the first FBO Chain to be issued the rigorous safety and ground handling accreditation from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC). The International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) is a set of global industry’s best practices for business aviation ground handlers.
“The International Business Aviation Council congratulates the entire TAC Air team in demonstrating such a strong commitment to building and maintaining a culture based on safety management and risk mitigation,” said Terry Yeomans, IS-BAH Program Director for the IBAC.
IS-BAH accreditation involves a complete audit of an FBO’s safety management systems, emergency procedures, organizational structure, administrative elements, security procedures, training protocols, and operating procedure.
“We’d rather be better than lucky,” says Christian Sasfai, TAC Air VP and COO. “As we continue to grow our network, it becomes increasingly important to formalize our process for continuous improvement and build upon the safety culture already in place.” Sasfai adds, “We continue to make investments in building a strong customer service experience and one aspect of that is our commitment to a higher level of safety and risk management.“
Certificates of registration are issued by IBAC to FBOs that have successfully demonstrated conformity to the industry’s best practice standards through completion of a three-stage external audit by an IBAC accredited auditor.
