BAC has, in recent years, come to specialise in supporting the Mining and Exploration industry. Proven operational success in some of the most remote areas in East and Central Africa has grown BAC’s reputation as an industry leader in this field.
With the steady increase in drilling, mining, surveying and mapping throughout increasingly inaccessible regions of Africa, the versatility and unique capabilities of the helicopter has made it indispensable in this industry. Many clients have entrusted their helicopter logistical support to the expertise of BAC operations. Understanding that cost and timing is of the utmost importance to the client, and with highly experienced and knowledgeable pilots and crew, drill rig support and personnel transport operations are always conducted in the safest and most efficient manner possible.
BAC prides itself on an incident-free track record and in providing customers with a personalised service that includes a support network designed to ensure that each project is completed safely and efficiently.
An on-site risk assessment is always conducted before operations begin. A safe environment is essential to professional and effective operations. All personnel involved are thoroughly briefed to ensure effective communication on site and their various responsibilities. BAC’s SMS (Safety Management System) and Quality Control System ensure the highest standards of safety and equipment are always adhered to.
All operational aircraft are equipped with fleet tracking equipment, which allows BAC to provide its clients with real-time feedback on where the helicopter is operating at any given time.
