About BAC Helicopters

Corporate Commitment

Our Vision

BAC’s vision is to be an African aviation specialist and industry leader, in the provision of rotary-wing services, which shall include helicopter and UAV services to a multitude of sectors such as Mining Exploration, Oil & Gas, Fire Management, Agriculture and Humanitarian Aid.

Our Strategic Objectives

  • Strive to be the preferred rotary-wing service provider to the sectors we service across all African markets.
  • Create and maintain an industry leading ‘customer value proposition’ through superior operational flexibility, efficiency and reliability.
  • Ensure the highest standards of safety, quality and ethics in every organisational and operational process we undertake.
  • Strive to be a good corporate citizen and ensure that all stakeholders are treated fairly and with due respect.    


Quality Management goes hand in hand with the Safety programme and is the means by which we measure our performance in order to achieve total regulatory compliance, with both our approved Operations Manual and the SACAA Part 127 CATS and CARs, in every aspect of the organisation.

The quality assurance system has been designed to monitor the success of the procedures we have in place and to continually modify and improve them where necessary. This quality system is vital for the early detection of weak points and allows us an opportunity to evaluate and mitigate on a continuous basis in order that we never become complacent and are always growing.


Safety is the primary concern of every member of the BAC Helicopters team. Safety underpins every aspect of all BAC operations and is based on a company culture, driven to a dedication of safety awareness, improvement and safe operating practices.

Our objective is the proactive management of identifiable risks and the elimination of injury to personnel and damage to equipment. To that end, we continuously examine our operation for hazards and find ways to minimise them. We actively encourage our staff and students to report hazards and incidents, we document our findings and responses, identify trends emerging, implement new procedures, train our staff, provide solid feedback and strive for continuous improvement.

An SMS (Safety Management System) has been established with procedures and processes in place that facilitate and encourage all employees and students to continual risk analysis.

A pre-emptive approach and the right attitude towards safety have given BAC a proud and enviable safety record in the industry.


As a responsible South African company, we fully appreciate the need for social upliftment across disadvantaged communities throughout our country.

BAC is committed to the educational development of individuals and the support of business from disadvantaged backgrounds, within the communities where we operate, in an effort to contribute towards the social upliftment objectives of our country.

We recognize that established companies, such as ours, are best positioned to make a positive impact in pursuit of a better South Africa for all.
