Presidential Aviation passes stage I of IS-BAO registration
Aviation entities around the world recognise IS-BAO as a leader in business aviation industry standards, and achieving registration is an extensive and rigorous process of auditing procedures, paperwork and systems.

Fort Lauderdale Executive airport-based aircraft charter, management, aircraft sales and jet maintenance company Presidential Aviation has passed its Stage I audit for IS-BAO registration. Safety and training officer Jason Wilde says: “We are extremely proud of this milestone. It is a depiction of the superior level of safety awareness within our company and it shows the seasoned skill set of our entire team.” Wilde leads and monitors the company’s internal safety management system (SMS), the foundation of the IS-BAO standard.

CEO Oscar Arce adds: “The IS-BAO programme is broken down into three stages of audits. Passing the IS-BAO stage I audit confirms our company’s SMS infrastructure is established and safety management activities have been appropriately targeted.”

Presidential Aviation specialises in a wide range of corporate jets for varied charter mission types, and for aircraft management customers it offers pilot and flight crew training, crew management and scheduling, aircraft maintenance and record-keeping. The company employs factory-trained maintenance technicians and holds a 14 CFR Part 145 certified repair station certificate with a limited airframe rating on Gulfstream IV, Falcon 50 and Falcon 50EX aircraft.

The company is also an ARGUS Gold Rated company, Wyvern Wingman Operator and a NATA member. Its headquarters are located in Florida and the facility consists of approximately 36,000 sq ft of hangar space.
