American Aero FTW, an FBO based at Meacham International Airport in Fort Worth, Texas became the first FBO in the world to earn a new Stage III safety and ground handling certificate of registration from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC). IBAC’s International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) registration is a global, voluntary code of best practices for business aviation ground handlers. IS-BAH is a joint program between IBAC and the National Air Transportation Association (NATA).
