American Aero FTW, an FBO at Meacham International Airport in Fort Worth, is the first FBO to earn a new Stage 3 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. It incorporates a safety management system in all aspects of FBO operations and is aligned with the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO).

In 2015, American Aero FTW was the first FBO in the Western Hemisphere to the earn IS-BAH Stage 1 registration. In 2017, it was one of the first in the world to earn Stage 2.
