San Luis Obispo County airport-headquartered ACI Jet, which provides corporate aircraft management, charter, maintenance and ground handling services, has received its IS-BAO Stage III certification from IBAC. IS-BAO is the global industry standard for operators, and is designed to meet SMS requirements from ICAO, according to IBAC.

Being a Stage III certified flight department means the SMS infrastructure has been established, all safety risks have been identified and effectively managed, and a positive safety culture has been maintained. This certification affirms the values and procedures that ACI Jet's flight operations department has made its standard practice.
