Life Flight Network has been awarded Level 2 of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), the company said.
Achieving IS-BAO Level 2 confirms safety risks are being effectively managed. The organization is actively working towards Level 3 which is the highest certification level awarded by IS-BAO.
IS-BAO´s fundamental purpose is to foster standardized, safe, and highly professional aircraft operations. It is a set of performance-based standards that uses a safety management system as its cornerstone, addressing operations, maintenance, training, and other related issues.
