Mastering BARS Audits with Hover UAV: Your Guide to Drone Compliance

Navigating the complex world of aviation compliance can be daunting, especially when it comes to the rapidly evolving field of drone or Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) technology. But with Hover UAV, securing a BARS (Basic Aviation Risk Standard) Audit becomes a breeze. This blog post is designed to demystify what a BARS audit is and how our specialised services can guide you through this critical process.

A Primer on BARS – Basic Aviation Risk Standard Audits

Before diving into the how-to, let’s decode what a BARS audit entails. Developed by the Flight Safety Foundation, the BARS program is an internationally recognized safety standard used to assess the risk profile of aviation operations.

The RPAS BARS Audit provides an in-depth evaluation of an operator’s management systems and operations, analysing and verifying the procedures, processes, and systems in place to mitigate risk. From safety assurance to efficiency checks, the BARS audit ensures operators are fully equipped to handle a variety of operational environments.

Why Basic Aviation Risk Standard (BARS) Audits Matter

1. Comprehensive Assessment: A BARS audit offers a thorough review that meets the criteria of multiple contracting companies, saving time and resources.

2. Suitability Check: It guarantees that operators can adequately manage remote and complex conditions.

3. Enhanced Safety: The audit provides an additional layer of safety for your assets, operations, and employees.

4. Access to Best Practices: It opens up avenues to globally recognised, effective practices in aviation risk management.

Introduction to the RPAS Audit Program

Special Operational Categories in BARS Audits

The BARS audit also includes Operational Categories, and appendices for specific operations using RPAS. These categories extend to:

  • Operations in underground or confined spaces
  • Beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations
  • Offshore or maritime environment operations
  • Use of RPAS with external or sling loads
