Offshore Helicopter Operators Announce Joint Review To Enhance Flight Safety

September 27, 2013

Offshore helicopter operators Avincis Group, Bristow Group and CHC Helicopter announced today they have launched a review of safety practices that will deepen their commitment to share best practices and consistently operate at the highest possible level of safety. The three companies leading this effort will reach out to other helicopter operators to encourage them to join the review group.

The joint review of safety-related processes, procedures, training and equipment will identify best practices on the ground and in the air, combining the operators' collective experience. Experts in safety, training and flight operations from the three companies will participate in the review initially, with subsequent involvement to include their maintenance personnel and other key industry professionals. The group first will focus on European operational procedures, but will explore and adopt best practice from the global industry and scale its review accordingly.
