Joby Aviation has become the first advanced air mobility (AAM) company to achieve the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operators (IS-BAO) registration, which highlights their commitment to safety.

As the globally recognized voluntary safety standard, IS-BAO assists operators in applying industry best practices by challenging them to review and compare their safety-related policies, processes, and procedures and then make improvements, elevating them to a global standard. IS-BAO was developed by the business aviation community and is designed to promote high-quality operating practices by establishing a framework for effective safety and operational processes, providing tools to facilitate the implementation and deliver a safety management system (SMS) appropriate to all operational profiles.

Andrew Karas, Director IS-BAO Programme, said: “It’s exciting to see Joby make this commitment to safety in their operation from the start. They have been active in our IS-BAO AAM working group and contributed to the adaptation process of the standard to this new sector. Our team has enjoyed working with the Joby safety team and admire their hard work and professionalism.”
