Desert Jet Center Successfully Completes IS-BAH Stage 2 Audit, Achieves Highest FBO Safety Ratings in the Region

Desert Jet Center has successfully completed the IS-BAH stage 2 audit, emerging as the only FBO in Thermal, the greater Palm Springs area, Southern California and the overall desert southwest region to hold both IS-BAH registration and the NATA Safety 1st certification.

The International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) is a set of global industry best practices for business aviation ground handlers and FBOs, 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 an independent, third-party audit. The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) Safety 1st program ensures that all team members are trained under a consistent standard.

The NATA maintains an up-to-date status map of the safety standards status of all FBOs worldwide. The map, found here establishes Desert Jet Center as the only FBO in the greater Palm Springs area to hold a current NATA Safety 1st certification and/or the IS-BAH registration, and the only FBO in Southern California, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico to meet both standards.

“Desert Jet Center’s mission to ’Give Them the WOW’ is built on the three pillars of proactive safety, anticipatory service and state-of the-art facilities,” said Denise Wilson, President and CEO of parent company Desert Jet. “Achieving IS-BAH stage 2 demonstrates the team’s commitment to safety, while they are simultaneously building their impressive new facility and continually earning multiple five-star ratings on relevant industry sites and social media for delivering anticipatory service. I’m very proud of the team at our FBO, as they are building on my long-standing vision to develop a first-class FBO to elevate the safety, service and facilities at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport.”
