We have approached that time of year again where Owners, their representatives, yacht management companies and Captains ensure that crew members have in date 'Heliport Training' qualifications to operate their helicopters throughout the season.

Aviation capable superyachts must have, on board, sufficient crew members with the appropriate training whether their heliports operate commercially or non-commercially (Private), to mitigate the risks to the helicopter, the yacht, the passengers and crew of both.

Delivering safe and efficient heliport operations is not difficult when you have a comprehensive 'Shipboard Heliport Operations Manual' (SHOM) to refer to, along with appropriately trained, confident and competent crew members who understand the risks involved and are able to promote a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Maritime Aviation provide MCA approved 'Large Yacht Heliport Safety Training Courses' including live helicopter rescue & firefighting at our facilities nr Southampton UK, Vlissengen, The Netherlands, Bremen, Germany and La Ciotat, France. We can also discuss training at other locations.
