Changes Are Coming to IS-BAO

There are changes coming to the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), which are designed to make operations easier and simpler in the years to come. “We listened to what the operators wanted for their program. Operators needed a refresh on where it came from to know where it’s going,” said Bennet Walsh, program director of IS-BAO. “There’s a reason we do it, and that’s to be proactive, to reduce risk and to improve operations.” Walsh shares insight on the changes coming to IS-BAO in this week’s NBAA Flight Plan podcast.
