Bernard Flashman
Business Aviation Auditor
Aviation Consultant

In the more than 35 years that I have been active in civil aviation, I have served as Captain on commuter and business aircraft and accumulated more than 13,000 hours of flight time. I am rated in the Learjet series, the Gulfstream II, III, and IV, and the Bombardier Global Express. In addition to my extensive international flight experience I have also served as a Standards Pilot , Part 135 Check Airman, Lead Captain, Chief Pilot, Base Manager, and Director of Operations for large aviation management , charter, and fractional ownership companies.

I have provided turnkey 14 CFR Part 135 Certification services for several operators of varying sizes, including world-wide operators of aircraft with more than ten passenger seats, and have composed and kept current all of the manuals required to support these operations. After I became a registered IS-BAO auditor in 2009, I worked closely with IBAC to develop the policy for the IS-BAO registration of an aircraft management company, and participated in several industry audits, including IS-BAO and ARG/US Platinum. My first experience with IS-BAO and other aviation standards and audits was as an operator, so I understand your perspective in trying to conform to external standards and undergoing external audits.

As a consultant, I have worked with a major training vendor as a Subject Matter Expert on several eLearning courses, and have represented a fatigue management company in the development of new tools and solutions for Fatigue Risk Management Systems in business aviation.

Since 2014, I have contracted as a Business Aviation Auditor with ARG/US PROS and have conducted more than one hundred audits, including IS-BAO (Stages 1,2,3), ARG/US AAS, ACSF, BARS, and ORNGE.

I have spent many years developing foreign language skills, and am currently fluent in Spanish, French and Portuguese. I also have a working knowledge of Italian and Mandarin Chinese, in addition to a lesser proficiency in several other languages.
