Welcome to Baere!
This is where your fuel and lubricant solutions begin.

Baere is a woman-owned business, formed to fill a niche market in aerospace material management, specifically fuels, lubricants, adhesives, paints, and other organic coatings and seals.
Research on aerospace fuels and lubricants continues at unprecedented rates.   New fuels from bio-renewable sources, cleaner burning synthetic fuels, and opportunities away from foreign crude oil provides opportunities.   It also raises questions -on the impacts of use, -on deployment, -on specifications and certifications.


You have questions...  We have answers.


Polar Vortex Doesn't Slow Us Down

is back to work after a great holiday and a good old fashion Midwestern snow storm.  And as many of you are experiencing, it was followed by those cold temperatures.  Reminds us in the industry part of the reason why we design our aerospace and military equipment to handle those negative degree temperature days! 

Our office was also treated to the added fun of a power outage as the temperature dropped.  It meant we didn't have phone service, but as long as the batteries lasted we were able to continue to work.  Albeit with gloves on! 

So what's on our calendar for January?  Well, we are active participants in CAAFI and will be attending the biennial meeting in Washington DC at the end of the month.  It is an excellent opportunity to network and participate in planning for alternative fuels for the commercial market.  Watch this space for news from the meeting.

We have added to our slate of ASTM projects as well.  We are now participants of the ASTM F44 project which is working to move the aircraft certification process from the FAR to a series of ASTM documents.  From their website, the purpose is described as "Through the establishment of a Part 23 Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC), industry expressed an interest in evolving Part 23 regulations into a more performance based document, reliant on standards for the design and performance of aircraft, in order to leverage all the benefits that referencing standards has to offer."

So far I am very impressed with the teams working on the documents and I'll see if I can do it justice in a later article.  In the mean time, we are planning a trip to Wichita, KS in February to do some serious work on the sections.  Leave it to me to hit all the best snow spots this winter!

So here's to a great New Year to all our current and future clients.  As always, we welcome all your inquiries and stand ready to help you with all your fuel and lubricant application and testing questions.
