HeliOffshore Promotes Safety Through Collaboration to Benefit Offshore Operations. 

Offshore helicopter operations come with unique challenges and safety considerations that can go beyond other operational profiles. From traversing through complex and changing conditions to navigating remote environments, offshore helicopter operators have many different elements they need to consider while in the air. HeliOffshore exists to create effective and uniform safety strategies among those who operate offshore missions; thus, building a sustainable framework for enhanced safety. These frameworks include but are not limited to guides for Flightpath Management, Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS), Helicopter Flight Data Monitoring (HFDM), Human Hazard Analysis, and Master Minimum Helideck Equipment List (MMHEL). 

SKYTRAC’s Role Within HeliOffshore 

As a company that works alongside many, SKYTRAC has a certain level of expertise within the offshore operation sector. To ensure our knowledge and services are always current, we prioritize attending events to further expand our understanding of safety regulations, requirements, and recommendations by governing bodies within the industry. HeliOffshore, a key player in opening the dialogue surrounding offshore operation safety, hosts an annual conference that poses an opportunity for SKYTRAC’s team to be present during discussions regarding safety requirements and recommendations within this crucial sector.  

Since SKYTRAC offers services that support or enable Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS), Flight Data Monitoring (FDM), and Flightpath Management, we must be aware of any changes or developments in the industry. With many clients and partners also members of HeliOffshore, it is integral that our products satisfy the requirements of HeliOffshore’s safety framework. It also allows us to collaborate with key operators in the industry and learn what may be beneficial for them in the future.
