8th Global Humanitarian Aviation Conference
David Anderson was invited to attend the 8th Global Humanitarian Aviation Conference (GHAC) and speak to the delegates on the BARS Program. The conference is run by the World Food Program (WFP) and has a wide range of delegates and exhibitors ranging from the Aircraft Operators, manufacturers, leasing and finance companies, other aid organizations and NGOs.
Over two days, delegates heard about safety related matters such as human factors, protection of safety data, challenges for the regulatory authorities in countries receiving support a well as commercial aspects. As a cost efficient tool in the oversight of contract aviation operations, BARS plays an important role in supporting this work.
The Flight Safety Foundation and the World Food Program (WFP) have had a co-operative agreement for many years whereby the Foundation assists WFP with expertise in aviation safety related matters. Whether its a provision of specialist staff, advice, promotion of activities and of recent years, access to the BARS Program.
Thank you to the WFP for the opportunity to promote the BARS Program and demonstrate how BARS is more than an audit Program but a collaborative approach and data driven method of helping the Operators manage their risks.
