AviationManuals and the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) are to combine efforts to make IS-BAO certification more convenient. Through this relationship, AviationManuals will maintain IBAC's free General Company Operations Manual (GCOM) current to the latest IS-BAO revision, as well as provide its renowned simplified development methods to operators looking to obtain and maintain IS-BAO registration.
“We look forward to supporting IBAC by improving and keeping its already robust GCOM up to date, thereby providing an even better free solution to IS-BAO members. At the same time, we both recognise that developing and maintaining your own manuals, even when starting with the GCOM, may not be an effective and efficient option, particularly for smaller operators,” says CEO Mark Baier. “We believe strongly that operators should always be looking to improve their operations and safety culture and IS-BAO remains an excellent way to do so.”
As IBAC's preferred partner, AviationManuals will be offering preferential pricing on manuals and free subscriptions to its document hosting module and iPad app, which includes Read & Initial tracking.
“We are expanding our relationship with Aviation Manuals to add value to our IS-BAO operators, especially small flight departments,” comments IS-BAO programme director Bennet Walsh. “This new alignment will improve access to our free GCOM that will be maintained to the latest IS-BAO revisions and be available in the operator's regulatory framework. Furthermore, AviationManuals will offer additional IS-BAO registration support to organisations with limited resources at a preferred rate.”
