NBAA PDP Course: Flight Operations Manual Workshop

Bookmark and Share

All fight departments should have an up-to-date fight operations manual setting forth policies and procedures designed to ensure safe and efective fight operations. NBAA requires its Corporate Members to have a manual, and many insurance companies also insist on one. The primary reason for a Flight Operations Manual, however, is to communicate expectations regarding fight department standards and procedures to department members, passengers and company personnel.

NBAA’s highly acclaimed Flight Operations Manual Workshop incorporates the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO). NBAA, in conjunction with the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), has devised a code of good operating practices for fight departments designed to promote highly professional operational practices. After years of development, a set of standards and practices has been established and is acceptable to most world aviation authorities. Flight departments that demonstrate compliance with these standards are eligible to receive a certifcate of registration from IBAC.

This highly interactive workshop draws upon the experiences of class participants to understand how fight departments really operate, and will cover topics including safety management systems, standard operating procedures (SOPs), fight operations, training, maintenance and international standards. Participants will leave the workshop with sufcient knowledge and materials to develop an IS-BAOcompliant draft manual upon arrival back at home base.

This course fullfills NBAA Professional Development Program (PDP) Objective: AM1.
