SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance announced today that the company has earned the coveted IS-BAO Stage 2 aviation accreditation. Awarded by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), the certification verifies that Angel MedFlight has achieved and maintained the highest international standards for safety, security, efficiency, and professionalism in the aviation industry.
The International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) is a code of standards and best practices designed to assist and evaluate flight departments worldwide. The Stage 2 certification is an upgrade to Angel MedFlight's original 2013 IS-BAO Stage 1 award, and verifies achievement of safety standard milestones. There are less than 325 other air carriers in the world that currently hold this prestigious distinction.
"This award certifies that Angel MedFlight is among the elite aviation operators in the world, dedicated to safety and operational excellence. More importantly, it provides peace of mind for family members and healthcare professionals who trust us to safely transport their critically ill or injured loved ones and patients," stated Angel MedFlight President Jason Siegert.
Certification for the award requires a comprehensive on-site audit and assessment of safety-related operational processes and management systems, including the company's Safety Management System, Emergency Response Plan, safety policies and procedures, and documented records of aircraft operation and maintenance.
Since 1981, IBAC has evaluated aviation operators around the world. IBAC is an international, non-governmental association that represents, promotes, and protects the interests of business aviation in international policy and regulatory forums. IS-BAO is a voluntary accreditation and is recognized as a standard of excellence worldwide.
"Angel MedFlight's IS-BAO Stage 2 award marks the successful completion of operational and safety goals set in our Stage 1 accreditation. We continually improve our process to better serve our patients and their families," said Brandon Kearns, Director of Operations for Angel MedFlight.
