There are locations for which the offshore helicopter transportation of passengers is the fastest, safest, most practical and efficient way to take personnel to key locations or areas with restricted access.
Offshore helicopter operations involving the transportation of passengers are usually carried out above great bodies of water, such as lakes or seas, to locations away from the mainland, such as platforms, islands or ships.
Even though this service may be provided in an executive context, offshore operations are usually related to other types of tasks, such as the construction, supervision or maintenance of infrastructure, as well as operations on vessels or platforms.
Examples of operations that require offshore helicopter transportation of passengers
– Vessel inspections
– Marine wind turbines
– Platforms for the oil and gas industry
– Coast guard operations
– Search and rescue missions
– Transportation of personnel to marine workstations
What does offshore helicopter transportation of passengers involve?
Operations involving offshore helicopter transportation of passengers require important safety considerations, since this type of tasks are often rough and performed under adverse conditions, since winds and storms are usually more intense in a maritime environment.
A specialized supplier, with high safety and service quality standards, a thorough inspection and maintenance of aircraft in specialized MRO centers and highly qualified and reliable personnel are required for an offshore helicopter transportation of passengers operation to be safe and effective.
