Bristow Group Global Headquarters

Bristow offers industrial aviation services worldwide

Bristow is the leading global industrial aviation services provider offering helicopter transportation, search and rescue (SAR) and aircraft support services, including maintenance and training, to government and civil organizations worldwide. Launched in the UK in 1955 as a small business to transport crews to rigs in the Persian Gulf, Bristow now has major operations in the United Kingdom, Nigeria and the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, and in most of the other major offshore oil and gas producing regions of the world, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Russia and Trinidad. The company’s number one core value is safety, and its Target Zero culture of safety is renown in the industry.

Bristow has earned its reputation transporting personnel to offshore production platforms, drilling rigs and other installations, leading the industry in several significant safety and technology-related “firsts”. Bristow was the first to develop and field Health Usage Monitoring System (HUMS), first to develop, test and evaluate Helicopter Operations Monitoring Program (HOMP) for flight quality, and first to develop and certify a Traffic Alert Collision Avoidance System (TCAS II) for large helicopters.

Through its partnerships with regional carriers, Bristow is able to deliver fully-integrated transportation to travelers in the UK, Africa, Brazil and Australia, providing fixed-wing with rotary-wing flight connectivity to transport personnel from onshore bases to offshore destinations. Flights are timed to connect with other airline inter-regional and international service, providing same-day service wherever possible to minimize the need for passengers to obtain overnight accommodations.

Bristow’s SAR capabilities are unmatched in the industry and the company offers SAR services in both the public and private sectors around the world.  Bristow offers SAR services to the private sector in Africa, Australia, Canada, Guyana, Norway, Russia and Trinidad and Bristow Helicopters operates civilian SAR helicopter service on behalf of Her Majesty's Coastguard in the UK. The company’s crews are experienced and highly skilled, trained, qualified and certified to the highest standards, and its SAR fleet is equipped with state of-the-art technology, including night vision, mission management and enhanced on-board medical capabilities.
