ACA, the Air Charter Association, is the successor to the Airbrokers’ Association founded by members of the Baltic Mercantile and Shipping Exchange. Its purpose is to bring to aircraft chartering the same standards of integrity and professionalism for which the Baltic Exchange and the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers is known.
Based in Washington, DC, the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) is the leading organisation for companies that rely on general aviation aircraft to help make their businesses more efficient, productive and successful.

Since the establishment in 2009, Qatar Executive has undergone an audit on two international standards in April 2019: IS-BAO (International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations) and Wyvern Wingman. These are two internationally recognised aviation safety standards in the business and charter jet fields; IS-BAO is based on ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) standards while Wyvern, popular in the USA market, also follows IS-BAO standard but dictates additional stringent requirements. The audits concentrated on, among other critical subjects, the Safety Management System (SMS) implemented in Qatar Executive as an operator.
