The International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), has already been adopted by the CAACI and the BDCA for many years as an acceptable means of compliance which they enforce, to meet the requirements of ICAO Annex 6 Part II. These standards generally imply Operator Manuals, Safety Management System, Emergency Response Plan, Accountable Manager and Safety Officer.

Other authorities/registries in Europe such as San Marino and Isle of Man do not advertise IS-BAO as a means of compliance to meet their Annex 6 Part II compliance requirements or intentions, although it is accepted. Moreover, with the mandatory Part NCC compliance deadline of August 2016, most foreign registries are struggling to dialog with EASA and find an agreement (Part NCC is also applicable to Operators of non-EASA registered aircraft with their principle place of business in the EU or EASA member state).

Qjet embraces the IS-BAO philosophy and enjoys helping operators implement their system. For specific support relative Flight Operations, we are working within our network of preferred service providers and partners.

Part NCC is required soon, and could influence your approach to IS-BAO. If you think you could be affected by it, don't contact to hesitate us for advoce on what to do.
