Clay Lacy Seattle FBO Set to be First IS-BAH Stage 2 Location in the U.S.

(Seattle—May 16, 2017) Clay Lacy Aviation, LLC (CLA-Seattle), is about to undergo a rigorous third-party audit that could result in the granting of the first Stage II IS-BAH registration in the United States.
Only three other ground handling operations in the world (all in Europe) have reached this milestone. CLA-Seattle was recognized as an International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) “Trailblazer” FBO by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) in June of 2016 when they earned one of the first Stage I registrations.

The International Standard for Business Aircraft Handlers is a set of global industry best practices for business aviation ground handlers, featuring at its core a safety management system (SMS). The IS-BAH follows the structure of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) Program and incorporates the NATA Safety 1st Ground Audit Program. IS-BAH is the global industry standard that meets or exceeds SMS requirements from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The Stage II registration requires the FBO to not only demonstrate that they maintain a Safety Management System but that they incorporate their SMS in every facet of their day-to-day operations.
