View Full Version : ISBAO Question

I know there have been threads here in the past about the ISBAO "process", but I'm wondering, now that the program has been in place for a while and has gained some acceptance (for lack of a better term - I know there are still plenty of nonbelievers), has anyone been ramp check and had to prove ISBAO compliance? Have you had to whip out your fancy new ISBAO certificate to show some regulatory rep that your flight department is up to speed?

I'm not arguing the pros/cons of the program - I'm generally a believer in what the program seeks to establish. Just wondering if being a card carrying ISBAO member has saved anyone's bacon in terms of regulatory compliance and/or pleasing some ramp checker in a far off land.

Thanks.

Guess that'd be a "no".:cool:

Your audience is a bit small. To answer your question one would have to be ISBAO certified, had a ramp check, and be online on a friday afternoon :). I would give a little more time for people to chime in.

We completed our ISBAO certification in 2011 but none of our 3 world traveling aircraft have been ramp checked.

Understood. I figured it was a shot in the dark. Thanks for your feedback.
