Expert Consultancy From A Helideck Certification Agency

As an Aviation Inspection Body (AIB), we offer expert consultancy support for the safe design, use and annual management of Helideck Landing Areas. Our Helideck Certification Officers work closely with design teams on early concepts to ensure that the initial ideas meet the requirements of the regulations. We regularly carry out thorough on-board assessments for Helicopter Landing Area Certificates (HLAC) and offer consultancy for any owner/operator required improvements or alterations to an existing Helideck area, ensuring these changes will be compliant with the regulations.
