IBAC: Update - March 2018

A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR GENERAL


Kurt Edwards


 


One of IBAC's on-going objectives is to improve the connections among the world's business aviation communities.  Building our global community facilitates information sharing and networking among the national and regional business aviation associations and the operator members around the world.  


One of IBAC's on-going objectives is to improve the connections among the world's business aviation communities.  Building our global community facilitates information sharing and networking among the national and regional business aviation associations and the operator members around the world.  

Mexico has a significant business aviation community.  By some estimates, there are anywhere from 300 to 500 business aircraft operators, yet the Mexican industry as a whole does not have a structure in which it works collectively to advance the interests of business aviation in Mexico.  In February, IBAC held an introductory meeting with business aircraft operators, FBOs, and handlers at Toluca Airport, just outside of Mexico City.  It is the most active business aviation airport in Mexico.  We wanted to learn more about the industry there and to explore whether there is organic interest in developing an association to represent business aviation in Mexico and to cooperate with associations around the world. 

What we heard was quite positive, and we look forward to learning about advancing exploratory discussions.  This effort must develop organically from within Mexico, but IBAC, with its member associations, has pledged to facilitate and assist as necessary.  For those interested, do refer to the newly established Mexican Business Aviation Association Facebook page.

In addition to our meeting with the Mexican industry, we also held discussions with the DGAC regarding cooperation on the IS-BAO and IS-BAH Programmes.  While the DGAC recognizes IS-BAO as a means of compliance for business aircraft operators, it is less familiar with IS-BAH but has now committed to reviewing it for use as another voluntary industry standard to promote safety in Mexico.
