Banyan ramps up procedures to achieve IS-BAH
Banyan previously had a safety committee and documented procedures but needed to add more detail to meet the IS-BAH requirements. Training manager Kenny Gibson led a dedicated team in order to meet the standard.
Banyan underwent a rigorous audit process to achieve IS-BAH Stage I.

Banyan Air Service, based at Fort Lauderdale Executive airport, has earned IS-BAH Stage I accreditation.

“We are proud to be the first FBO at Fort Lauderdale to earn this accreditation,” says training manager Kenny Gibson. “Safety is very important to us at Banyan, and the IS-BAH accreditation demonstrates our commitment to providing industry best practices to our customers. We are very proud to have earned it.”

IS-BAH involved a complete audit of Banyan's FBO processes and procedures for safety. Gibson led the effort in this process with the help of seven other teammates; Ryan Bartman, Alex Casanova, Dennis Porebski, Eddie Osborne, Carlos Robins, Eric Veal and Louis Homsher.

Banyan previously had a safety committee and documented procedures but needed to add more detail to meet the IS-BAH requirements. Gibson wrote a new line service manual and delegated each of the team members a section of the process to cross reference the audit findings with the manual to ensure accuracy.

Director of customer support Jon Tonko explains: “Kenny and his team have been working on this project for the past 18 months, reworking our manual, standard operating procedures and implementing best practices which were then audited over the course of three days. I am so proud of the team for all their extra effort while still serving our guests on a daily basis.”

Banyan has more than one million sq ft of hangar and office space within an 85 acre aviation complex. Its FBO provides fuelling and ground support and is consistently ranked as the top ranking south Florida FBO by aviation professionals. The company is celebrating 40 years in business this year and is looking forward to expanding to the north side of Fort Lauderdale Executive airport and to Opa-Locka airport in Miami.
