Dassault Falcon Flight Operations Department Receives IS-BAO Certification

Dassault Falcon’s Teterboro Flight Operations Department was recently awarded the International Standard for Business Aviation Operations (IS-BAO) Registration. IS-BAO is the accepted standard of aviation flight departments worldwide as the benchmark for safety and efficiency in business aircraft.

“We undertook this process to underscore our commitment to operational safety, maintenance and efficiency,” said Matt Boyle, Senior Vice President at Dassault Falcon.

“Dassault is an ISO-9000 registered company so we were already well aware of the benefits that standardization brings to manufacturing and flying organizations. The IS-BAO recognition brings an even higher level of excellence to our flight operations department than ISO-9000 currently delivers.”

IS-BAO challenges flight departments to review their current systems, programs and procedures, recognize strengths and weaknesses in those procedures, and upgrade to a higher standard. IS-BAO is similar to an ISO-9000 standard of practice, but specifically formulated for the business aviation community.

Adopting the IS-BAO is a self-guided process undertaken using guidance provided by the organization. Implementation of the standard is then audited by an approved ICAO audit team before registration is approved. Unlike state regulations for commercial aircraft operations, adopting the IS-BAO standard is a voluntary process designed to integrate all the best safety and operating procedures from various sources. It institutionalizes industry best practices and must be reviewed every two years.

Dassault Falcon Jet Corp. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dassault Aviation, and is responsible for selling and supporting Falcon business jets throughout North America, South America, and the Pacific Rim countries of Asia (including China). It employs a workforce of more than 2300 professionals who service, support and meet the needs of
Falcon operators in the Western Hemisphere. Since the rollout of the first Falcon 20 in 1963, over 1800 Falcon jets have been sold to more than 65 countries worldwide. The family of Falcon jets currently in production includes four tri-jets—the Falcon 50EX, 900DX, 900EX EASy, and the new 7X—as well as the twin-engine Falcon 2000, Falcon
2000DX and Falcon 2000EX EASy.
