Universal Aviation Earns IS-BAH Qualification

Universal Aviation Singapore, a ground handler based at Seletar Airport (WSSL), has earned Stage 3 accreditation under the International Standard for Business Aviation Handling (IS-BAH). The company has earned its IS-BAH Stage 1 registration in 2018 and Stage 2 in January 2020.

Stage 3 verifies that safety management system (SMS) activities are fully integrated into the operator’s business and that a positive safety culture is being sustained.

“Although our flight levels dropped significantly because of the pandemic and local restrictions, we continued to prioritize recurrent and refresher training. To earn IS-BAH Stage 3 during the pandemic demonstrates our commitment to the highest levels of safety and standards,” said Yvonne Chan, Managing Director at Universal Aviation Singapore.

The IS-BAH is a set of global industry best practices for business aviation ground handlers, which features at its core a safety management system. It is the global industry standard for handlers and operators around the world to meet the coming SMS requirements from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

“We are eagerly anticipating the reopening of the APAC region and by staying sharp with our skills training, we will be ready to support our customers’ missions with no ramp up time,” said Chan.
