TAG Aviation Asia has successfully achieved International Standard – Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) Stage 3 certification, the highest recognized standard from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC).
The Hong Kong-based operating center also renewed its accreditation to the Wingman Wyvern safety program earlier in this year.
TAG Aviation Asia demonstrated its compliance to the performance based IS-BAO code of best practice by meeting ‘base line’ requirements, with on-site third party audits that verify its crew members and staff are actively participating in the safety documentation and that the processes required in planning and conducting its operations are maintained. This achievement makes TAG Aviation Asia the first business jet operator to become Stage 3 accredited in the greater China region.
“Safety is one of the core values of TAG Aviation Asia and the entire team has worked very hard to achieve this distinguished accreditation,” said Carlos Gomez, CEO, TAG Aviation Asia. “It is an assurance to our customers of our ongoing investment to achieve the highest possible safety standards and of our highly professional quality operating standards.”
According to IS-BAO policy, the objective of a Stage 3 evaluation is to confirm that: firstly, the SMS is sustained and supported by an ongoing improvement process; secondly, a positive safety culture is sustained; and thirdly, safety management activities are fully integrated into the operator’s business.
“We congratulate TAG Aviation Asia on achieving IS-BAO Stage 3 registration and joining the distinguished group of operators worldwide who have successfully earned this recognition,” said Sonnie Bates, IS-BAO program director, IBAC.
