NovaJet ascends to IS-BAO Stage III
IS-BAO Stage III is the most advanced level and is only awarded when safety management systems have become a fully engrained aspect of a company's culture. NovaJet's hard work has paid dividends.

Toronto Pearson-headquartered NovaJet Aviation Group has been awarded The International Standard for Business Aircraft Operators (IS-BAO) Stage III accreditation for achieving the highest levels of safety and professionalism.

In addition to progressing to the most advanced level for IS-BAO, NovaJet continues to maintain an ARG/US Platinum safety registration.

VP and flight ops director Greg Young states: “We are proud of this recognition and are committed to maintaining these accreditations through total compliance, transparency and teamwork. We integrate safety into every aspect of our corporate culture and rigorously communicate the value of safety to our employees and customers.”

The IS-BAO is an industry code of best practices designed for the global aviation community to enhance operational safety. NovaJet actively participates in setting the benchmark for safety and efficiency to promote high quality operating practices, raising the confidence of regulators and our public stakeholders.

IS-BAO Stage III is the most advanced level and is only awarded when safety management systems have become a fully engrained aspect of a company's culture, and when a positive culture of safety management has been sustained over time.

In order to become and maintain IS-BAO certification, an operator must undergo regular audits every two to three years. While the audits are not required, taking part in this process is the cornerstone to adhering to the strict, global safety guidelines and shows a commitment to excellence. A lengthy list of aviation operations and maintenance practices are subject to deep scrutiny, covering everything from: organisation and personnel, training and proficiency, flight operations, maintenance requirements and environmental management.
