Offshore Oil Exploration

Helicopter support for the offshore oil industry is a difficult task and often conducted in abnormal operating conditions for both flight crews and their aircraft. Missions range from VFR to IFR, small single engine to large multiengine helicopters, and in harsh areas of operation from the Tropics to Arctic regions, often in a highly corrosive salt environment.

Achieving a safe and efficient operation requires highly professional flight and maintenance crews, as well as, good managers who make safety their number one priority.

An understanding of where this harsh environment takes its toll on both men and their equipment is a key qualifier for auditors who are able to determine if safety margins are sufficient.

Utilities/Aviation Specialist's employs personnel who are very familiar with the challenges of an on/offshore helicopter operation. Their backgrounds vary from having operated in both arctic and tropical regions and managing offshore helicopter operations.
