Paragon Aviation Group advances FBO safety with strategic partnerships


To show unwavering commitment to safety, Paragon Aviation Group has continued to fund the safety program Online Safety Officer (OSO) for all of the FBOs in the network for the past two years.

The OSO Program, spearheaded by aviation consultancy FBO Partners, provides consistent, industry-leading safety communication, training, and regulatory compliance through their monthly safety meetings.

Regardless of the FBO’s size, staffing level, or stage of SMS, FBO Partners offers a complete framework for an effective safety promotion and communication program meeting several IS-BAH and SMS requirements.

Through Paragon’s exclusive vendor program, Strategic Partners, they also work with another top safety
company – Polaris Aero. Founded in 2007, Polaris Aero provides intelligence software to simplify and
streamline safety for line personnel, safety managers, and operation management. Their VOCUS cloud-based platform apps offer comprehensive Safety Management System (SMS) e-learning, advanced risk assessment, and next-generation safety management systems.

As the SMS for Clay Lacy Aviation, Polaris is an important partner in Clay Lacy meeting the new standards of
the Federal Aviation Administration’s(FAA) SMS Voluntary Program. Clay Lacy joins the top 2% of U.S. Part 135 operators that have successfully completed and adopted a safety culture. Clay Lacy’s California FBOs at John Wayne Airport (KSNA) and Van Nuys Airport (KVNY) are both in The Paragon Network.

“Paragon’s emphasis on safety is an investment in our members’ success, and the consistent, safe handling of customers and their assets when visiting a Paragon Member,” said Megan Barnes, President of Paragon
Aviation Group. “I want to ensure that our members have the support they need not only to remain in
compliance, but ensure their teams’ training requirements are met. As our network continues to grow, we’re proud to partner with industry safety leaders like FBO Partners, Polaris Aero, and Clay Lacy Aviation.”

The Paragon Network is a membership of over 90 FBOs and international handling agents that provide world-class service to general aviation travelers around the globe.

Paragon Aviation Group performs a comprehensive audit of the facilities and services offered to ensure the quality of the member base before any FBO joins The Paragon Network. Each member FBO must comply with a set of strategically developed core standards to remain in the group. Paragon Aviation Group facilitates The Paragon Network.
