Desert Jet, a Private Jet Charter Company in Palm Springs, Earns IS-BAO Certification

Desert Jet joins the elite ranks of those aircraft operators who have earned the prestigious IS-BAO registration.
June 2, 2010 - PRLog -- Desert Jet (certificate 1DJA318M), the premier jet charter provider for the greater Palm Springs area, announced that it has earned the highly prestigious certification known as the IS-BAO.  IS-BAO is the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations, a strict code of best practices established for corporate flight departments and jet charter companies.  Similar to the ISO 9000 certification used in the manufacturing industry, the IS-BAO is considered the “gold standard” for business flight departments in meeting effective and efficient processes for safety and security.  

The foundation of the IS-BAO is the Safety Management System (SMS), a proactive method of identifying, controlling and mitigating risks.  “An effective SMS enhances the safety, efficiency and effectiveness of flight operations” says Don Spruston, director general of the International Business Aviation Council.

Desert Jet’s safety and operational practices were thoroughly and rigorously audited during the certification process.  Every aspect of the operation was reviewed and found to exceed the standards set by the International Business Aviation Council as well as ICAO.

“This certification has placed Desert Jet on the leading edge of business aircraft operations,” said Denise Wilson, President of Desert Jet.  “We are pleased to provide our clients further assurance of our commitment to providing them the safest way to travel”.

Desert Jet joins the ranks of Fortune 500 flight departments such as Coca Cola, Boeing, Nike and Shell that have received this certification.  As of the date of certification, Desert Jet is one of only 17 charter companies worldwide, and the only aircraft operator in the desert, to have earned IS-BAO certification.
