California FBO First To Complete NATA Safety 1st Ground Audit

NATA Program Created To Provide Consistent Operational Safety Standards For FBOs, Airports, More

A California FBO has become the first company listed on the NATA Ground Audit Registry. APP Jet Center recently completed the NATA Safety 1st audit to receive the listing. NATA’s Safety 1st Ground Audit program was created to provide a consistent operational safety standard for fixed base operators, airports, and other facilities providing ground-handling services to business and general aviation aircraft.

APP Jet Center’s completion of the Safety 1st Ground Audit, and their listing on the audit registry, indicate the high level of emphasis APP Hayward’s managers and employees place on safety and quality.

“Preparing for, conducting and following up on the Safety 1st Ground Audit was beyond educational and has allowed us to view our business as something more than just a provider of fuel and ground services. Flight crews, flight departments, and aircraft managers are part of a highly regulated world, and are recognized for that. Putting forth the work to be listed on the Safety 1st Ground Audit Registry has made us feel like we are a more integral part of perpetuating safety in the industry and not just a firm selling fuel and towing aircraft,” said APP Jet Center Vice President of Operations Christopher A. Hambleton.

“The NATA Safety 1st Ground Audit is an unprecedented opportunity for our FBO members to take a rigorous look at their operation as a whole, figure out where improvements in safety need to be made, and ensure that those changes are implemented. We applaud the effort put forth by APP Jet Center Hayward to complete the Ground Audit and achieve listing on the Ground Audit Registry,” said NATA Manager of Safety 1st Programs Elizabeth Nicholson.
