Here is the example of an IS-BAO compliant Advanced Aircrew Academy course list (with IS-BAO references) that might be recommended for fixed-wing pilots at Acme Widgets:

Courses to be taken every 24 Months

  • Emergency Situations and Equipment (5.1.3; 5.3.1)
  • HAZMAT/Dangerous Goods (5.1.3; 14.1.3)
  • Winter Operations/Surface Contamination (5.1.3)

Courses that cover Key Item Subjects

  • Controlled Flight Into Terrain (5.1.3 Note)
  • Crew Resource Management/Human Factors (5.2)
  • Fatigue Management (6.13)
  • High Altitude Operations (5.4)
  • International Procedures, including RVSM, MNPS, and RNP (5.1.3 Note; 7.3)
  • International SOPs (7.5.1)

  • RNAV (5.1, Item 9)

Selected courses that cover Optional Extras; Recommended based on Acme’s needs

  • Instrument Procedures and Aircraft Performance
  • Mountain Flying
  • Operations Manual
  • Runway Excursion/Incursion
  • TCAS
  • Weather
  • Weather Radar

The timing and frequency of courses are different for Part 91 operators like Acme, and Part 135 operators. That gets sorted out during the initial set up of the training. You can find more about that on this website by hovering over “Training Programs” on the menu bar, then clicking either “Part 135” or “IS-BAO/Part 91.”

Next up, we will adapt this course list to include the other members of the team: cabin attendants, maintenance techs, scheduler/dispatcher, and admin personnel, and Acme will purchase a helicopter!
