Latvia’s FBO Riga has become the first Baltic state FBO to gain the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) accreditation.
Roman Starkov, co-owner of the Flight Consulting Group, which comprises FBO Riga, commented, “We are proud to announce that we have accomplished the IS-BAH registration. It has been a long way and we can say it was started already at the stage of the FBO projecting.
“Safety is one of the most important priorities in aviation. The audit took several days, but several months of preparation had taken place before that. But the audit can be successful only if the performance is realized with consideration of all safety aspects.”
IS-BAH was developed by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and implemented in 2014. Currently, 89 organizations are listed as IS-BAH registered.
Terry Yeomans, IS-BAH program director at IBAC, added, “We are very glad that FBO Riga achieves IS-BAH registration, joining those who have already successfully implemented the standard. Now FBO Riga is the only IS-BAH-registered FBO in the Baltic states and we look forward to the development of the program in the region. FBO Riga’s quality manager, Kristaps Freimanis and his team can be proud of their achievement.”
