The International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) has awarded GrandView Aviation, with its Stage 2 certification. GrandView has been expanding its service across the United States, and recently added a 12th Embraer Phenom 300 to its fleet, a Phenom 300E model.
IS-BAO stages are part of a multi-year auditing process to advance an organization’s safety management system development.
After achieving Stage 1 in 2019, GrandView has been awarded Stage 2 during this audit period. It demonstrated its commitment to its safety management targets and effectively managed safety risks in the organization.
“The IS-BAO audit process is incredibility comprehensive and thorough,” said Emanuele Figlia, Director of Safety. “GrandView Aviation is committed to moving beyond industry best practices in safety into industry-leading practices. This is our next step in that process.”
As GrandView expands its fleet to more U.S. locations, the operator is hiring more flight crews. It is also hiring administrative and management personnel.
GrandView doubled its staff over the last year. It plans to continue this hiring due to increasing demand for charter flights on its fleet of Phenom 300s.
GrandView Aviation operates from bases in Baltimore, Chicago, Atlanta, Austin, Phoenix, and Denver. It also carries the Wyvern Wingman safety rating.
