Texas-based FBO McCreery Aviation is the latest to join the small group of service providers who have achieved Stage 3 registration under IBAC’s International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH).
The voluntary audit-based program, which was established in 2014, seeks to codify and encourage industry best practices in ground handling and FBO operations. To reach Stage 3—the current the top tier in the standard—candidates must successfully achieve each of the prior steps with a minimum of two years between them. McCreery, the lone FBO at McAllen Miller International Airport, was founded in 1946 and it is now one of only three locations in the U.S. to have achieved Stage 3.
“By choosing to voluntarily adopt and implement the global industry best safety practices within the IS-BAH through to Stage 3, McCreery Aviation has shown continued positive commitment to the management of, and the accountability for, safety at the core of their service provision, enabling a consistent experience to their valued customers,” said IS-BAH program director Terry Yeomans.
