The BAR Standards and Manuals

The BARS Program is made up of a suite of risk based aviation industry Standards with supporting Implementation Guidelines. All Standards are developed and presented in the Bow-Tie model for easy understanding and include a set of controls and defences for the identified risks.

There are dedicated Standards for Offshore Helicopter Operations, Aerial Mustering and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS). Within the Standards, there are Operational Categories for a wide variety of specialist roles such as airborne geophysical survey operations, night vision goggle operations, winching and hoist operations, medevac and helicopter external loads.

The Standards are developed by the industry and contracting companies and based around the specific risk these operations face in their day to day aviation activities.
