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.

Safeguard Helideck Certification (SHC) is a specialist division of Safeguard Engineering Ltd, an independent Safety Engineering Consultancy supporting clients in the Defence, Commercial, Maritime Aviation and Leisure Marine industries.

2020 Yachting Season and Covid 19

We are pleased to say that the team are now busy back at work completing HLACs and HLAIRs across Europe visiting Italy and France over the past few weeks. The impact of Covid 19 has been restrictive and to be back out there doing our job onboard Superyacht Helidecks is a great feeling. Since restrictions lifted Operations Manager Chris Wood and Helideck Certification Officer Lee Hooper have been travelling again and have assessed and completed a number of full commercial Helideck Certificates.

The diary is now getting busy as the Summer 2020 yachting season picks up and we would urge anyone looking for expert helideck certification services to get in touch.
