SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — ACI Jet, a leading provider of aviation services, announced that its San Luis Obispo FBO (SBP) has achieved the IS-BAH (International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling) certification, reaffirming its commitment to safety and excellence in aviation operations.

ACI Jet SBP conducts over 20,000 aircraft handling and fueling operations annually, delivering more than 5 million gallons of Jet-A and Avgas for general, business, military, and airline operations. This achievement underscores the robust and fully-customized training and safety programs ingrained within the company’s culture.

The IS-BAH certification process entails rigorous audits conducted by industry experts. Jim Bennet and Bill McBride, representing Pennsylvania-based Sundog Aviation, spearheaded the audit at ACI Jet SBP. With decades of experience managing leading flight departments and advocating for aviation safety best practices, Bennet and McBride provided invaluable insights during the evaluation process.


Distinguished by its range of services, ACI Jet SBP caters not only to general aviation but also serves the United States military and provides fuel for scheduled airline flights at San Luis Obispo County Airport. Additionally, ACI Jet SBP offers ground handling and fuel services for ACI Jet MRO’s Bombardier Authorized Service Facility (ASF) and Repair Station, enhancing the region’s aviation infrastructure.

Andrew Robillard, Vice President of FBOs at ACI Jet, emphasized the company’s unwavering commitment to safety, stating, “A culture of safety doesn’t just mean deciding to operate safely. It means operating safely by habit and by design. Our internal Safety & Quality Management System (SQMS) goes far beyond establishing safety standards and proactively seeks out better ways of doing things.”

With this milestone achieved, ACI Jet’s Paso Robles (PRB) FBO is ready to pursue IS-BAH certification pending the outcome of the City’s assessment of a long-term lease option.
