Training Courses

We provide a number of maritime aviation training services, including delivery of all 4 courses making up the MCA Helideck Safety Training Syllabus. To discuss your bespoke training requirements, please contact us.


MCA Heliport
Safety Training

We deliver a full suite of helideck crew training products, including MCA-accredited helideck safety training courses.  Our training incorporates helicopter hazards, Standard and Emergency Operating Procedures (SOPs & EOPs) to allow crews to operate safely as:

  • Helicopter Landing Officer (HLO)

  • Helicopter Deck Assistant (HDA)


Aviation Awareness Training

As an ever-increasing number of yachts are designed with helidecks and ‘touch & go’ helipads, the roles of non-helideck crew members onboard, and those of ship and technical managers ashore, are becoming ever more complex.  MAST has designed bespoke Aviation Awareness courses specifically to meet the needs of both of these groups, to ensure they can play their part in delivering safety of helicopter operations.
