Title:Offshore Helicopter Operations
Description:This Safety Directive is made in the interests of helicopter passenger safety and survivability for the reasons set out in Chapter 9 of the CAA Safety Review of Offshore Public Transport Helicopter Operations (CAP 1145). The review identified areas of passenger survivability that needed addressing including improving the prospects of rescue following a ditching, together with mitigating the consequences of capsize. This SD revokes and replaces SD-2015/004, which extended the scope of the directive to cover support for marine lights and alleviation for the carriage of medically incapacitated passengers, and introduces a revised definition for ‘offshore location’ and several textual amendments.
