American Aero FTW earns Stage II IS-BAH certification

American Aero FTW, a fixed-base operator (FBO) serving Meacham International Airport in Fort Worth, Texas, has earned the new Stage II safety and ground handling certificate of registration from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC).

American Aero FTW became the first FBO in the western hemisphere to earn Stage I certification in 2015. Stage II registration requires an FBO to demonstrate that it maintains and incorporates safety management systems (SMS) standards in day-to-day operations. The FBO must show that the systems, processes, and procedures assessed at Stage I are maturing and continue to improve safety performance within ground handling activities.

Terry Yeomans, IS-BAH program director, said, “It has been a significant year for American Aero FTW, with the grand opening of a new, world-class facility and its achievement in becoming one of the first FBOs in the world to earn Stage II registration. American Aero FTW continues to lead the industry sector in safety management and risk mitigation for the benefit of the customers it serves.”

Riggs Brown, American Aero FTW general manager, added, “The American Aero FTW team is committed to delivering the highest standards of safety and ground handling practices. As the only Stage II registered FBO in Texas and one of the first in the world to achieve this milestone, the American Aero FTW team continues to deliver the best and safest services in the industry.”
