Meet the Team
Kyle received NBAA 2019 Tony Kern “Professionalism in Aviation” award
In 2020, High Altitude worked closely with us to review our manuals and our safety practices before the audit date, which allowed us to identify any major issues in advance. So, on the actual audit date, our Stage 3 ISBAO audit went smoothly and our auditor (Kyle Kerekffy) provided us with moments to learn industry best practices and we felt relaxed.
Kyle’s experience shines through as a Safety Manager, International Captain, and someone who has implemented ISBAO programs as an operator, which allows for a realistic view to how companies like Disney run their department, creating a productive and enjoyable audit experience.
Conversations with Kyle are easy and informative, and we were impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. His approach to the IS-BAO audit process compliments our flight department’s culture and safety style, and since Kyle flies daily just like us, we felt he was more of an extension of our safety team than an auditor. In the end, value was added, and our safety culture improved.
I highly recommend High Altitude Enterprises for your next audit.
