Please note that, in the event of UK participation in EASA and mutual recognition of licences and certificates ceasing, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the outcome of the transition period negotiations on the long-term aviation relationship between the UK and the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

Title:Offshore Helicopter Operations – Vibration Health Monitoring
Description:The reason for the issue of this Safety Directive is because the CAA considers that it is in the interests of safe operations that UK registered helicopters conducting offshore operations in a hostile environment continue to be fitted with and operate Vibration Health Monitoring (VHM) equipment pending the full implementation of the revisions to Regulation (EU) No. 965/2012 (the Air Operations Regulation) contained within the new specific approval for offshore helicopters. This directive supersedes SD 2015/002 which is revoked.
Status:Cancelled on 26 March 2019
