“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not an act but a habit.” Aristotle inked the phrase back in the 300s BCE and we still abide by it today.
When it comes down to our over 100 years of combined aviation experience, “excellence” isn’t just a term we throw around for marketing materials, it’s a term we’ve spent years earning, maintaining and letting permeate throughout the ranks of our company.
As part of this record of excellence, Macair is registered to and audited by the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO). We face regular IS-BAO audits that are regarded as the standard for aviation operations. IS-BAO audits are recognized by both the NBAA and the European Business Aviation Association, built around a Safety Management System (SMS) which helps evaluate and mitigate risk, and continuously improve our practices and procedures. These audits are systematic, objective reviews that scrutinize every facet of our aviation operations.
The comprehensive list of things IS-BAO covers:
- SMS requirements
- organization and personnel
- standard operating procedures
- training programs
- flight operations
- operations in international airspace
- aircraft equipment requirements
- aircraft maintenance requirements
- company operations manual
- emergency response plan
- environmental management
- occupational health and safety
- transportation of dangerous goods, and security
