Flexjet Europe has achieved IS-BAO accreditation from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and continues in IBAC’s Progressive Stage 3 program, the Directional Aviation company announced today. The accreditation was earned in December following an independent audit of Flexjet Europe’s UK aviation operations, structures, and processes, including its safety management system, the foundation of IS-BAO accreditation.
FlexJet Europe watched its flight activity increase by more than 400 percent in 2021 and is preparing for further growth this year. “Our ambitious plans for 2022 include significant expansion of our fleet, crew, and support infrastructure,” said Flexjet European managing director Marine Eugène.
Also last year, Flexjet Europe was granted EASA Approved Training Organization status from Transport Malta, allowing the company to offer in-house conversion courses and training. That gives the company more control over the development timeline for its European pilots.
In addition, the fractional operator received EASA Category II approval with the advanced pilot training qualification to operate to more airports in challenging weather conditions. “We have worked relentlessly to structure ourselves around the highest operational standards, and it is rewarding to have begun 2022 with some key milestones reached,” added Flexjet executive v-p of flight operations for Europe Clive Richardson.
