Universal Aviation Singapore earns IS-BAH accreditation

Five more Universal Aviation locations slated for IS-BAH accreditation in next year.

Universal Aviation Singapore, based at Seletar Airport (WSSL), has earned accreditation under the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) program.

Universal Aviation Singapore joins Universal Aviation London Stansted (EGSS) as the second Universal Aviation location to become an IS-BAH accredited location. Universal Aviation, the ground support division of Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc., has more than 40 locations in 20 countries.

“Earning our IS-BAH accreditation is validation of our ongoing commitment to safety and ensuring our client’s mission success by reducing their operating risk and stress,” said Yvonne Chan, Managing Director, Universal Aviation Singapore. “We are proud to earn this level of distinction, as it demonstrates to our customers and stakeholders our unwavering dedication to implementing industry-recognized best practices for safety, systems, training, and security.”

The International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) is a set of global industry best practices for business aviation ground handlers, which features at its core a safety management system (SMS). The IS-BAH follows the structure of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) Program and incorporates the NATA Safety 1st Ground Audit Program. IS-BAH 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).

“Universal Aviation Singapore is the second of our locations to earn IS-BAH and our second in the last six months, joining Universal Aviation Stansted, which earned its accreditation in August 2017,” said Charlie Mularski, Senior Vice President, International, Universal®. “Throughout 2018 and early 2019, we anticipate five more Universal Aviation locations to be audited for IS-BAH accreditation. Our clients’ missions are stressful. We’re ensuring they can be at ease, knowing we are meeting and exceeding business aviation’s best safety and security procedures when operating to our Universal Aviation locations.”
