Your Safety


Your safety, and the safety of our crew and aircraft is our top priority. Safety is embedded in our culture and is part of every aspect of our operation. Safety is a topic in all our planning meetings and drives our day-to-day decision-making supported and encouraged by our CEO.

Privaira has implemented a comprehensive Safety Management System (SMS) to ensure internal compliance with our established safety policies and directives. Our internal safety process includes:

  • Safety guidelines in all areas of operation.
  • Regular safety checks of all flight, maintenance, and security procedures.
  • Continuous tracking and reporting of safety related issues.
  • Active safety and security policy reinforcement by senior management.
  • Emergency Response Planning and training.

International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) Stage II certification

Initiated in 2002 the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) is designed to promote use of high quality operating practices for international business aircraft operations. It provides baseline requirements for structuring flight departments and planning and conducting their operations; it challenges flight departments to review their current systems, programs and procedures, recognize strengths and weaknesses in those procedures, and upgrade to a higher standard. Regular audits confirm that the SMS infrastructure is established and that safety management activities are appropriately targeted and that safety risks are being effectively managed.
