The Value of Industry Standards to “Bouncebackability”

Once this pandemic scare ends and restrictions start to lift, now, more than ever, is the time to get back to basics, using the standards and best practices documented and implemented from within the IS-BAH. Show your customers, both old and new, a proactive approach in readiness to help spearhead the economic recovery.

The total systems approach of the IS-BA programmes is a perfect example of how going above and beyond can help better prepare you for the unforeseen challenges we all face today. By opting to do more than the basics, hopefully you have created the framework for a constant flow of new possibilities that for example raise helpful questions such as “why do we do it that way?” “Is there an alternative?” “What if we did it differently?”


The International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and its national and regional member associations have spent a great deal of time and resources developing industry standards, specifically aimed at the needs of our sector since the launch of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) in 2002. IBAC is actively participating in the decision-making processes at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) ensuring that the standards and recommended practices agreed by the ICAO Member States consider, where needed, the business and general aviation sector before adoption by States into national requirements.
