Become a BARS Member Organization
Increase the expertise of your current aviation safety regime and expand the capacity of safety information available to your organization by joining as a BARS Member Organization.
Organizations that use the services of aircraft operators to provide aviation support services may apply to become BARS Member Organizations (BMO). Membership of the BARS Program is open to any organization that uses contracted outsourced aviation to support their activities. The BAR Standard and BARS for Off Shore Helicopter Operations (BARS-OHO) audit protocols cover core elements within both areas of operation. Specific operational categories such as Medevac, Night Vision Goggles (NVG) and Helicopter External Load Operations (HELO) can also be applied across fixed and rotary wing operators. The BARS Program helps provide organizations with added assurance of safety when operations occur in remote and challenging environments.
Currently the majority of BMOs in the Program are from the resource sector for whom the Program was developed. With the maturity and flexibility of the BARS Program it has expanded into other sectors including insurance companies, government departments, humanitarian organizations, International Aid and construction support companies.
As Aviation is rapidly-expanding in capability and technology, it becomes a challenge for all aviation professionals to stay relevant in this space. Being a BMO provides your company with access to the latest research and analysis, studies, tools, group of peers and expert opinions as part of the membership package.
We have upgraded the BARS Program to offer two auditing streams, including a Core and Comprehensive Registration Audit for Aircraft Operators. The Comprehensive Registration stream involves an enhanced audit evaluation of procedures and systems implementation, while the Core Registration allows Operators to remain in the Program at a reduced level of commitment.
