EU exit

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 Helideck Environmental Research
Description:This paper comprises two parts. The first reports on the validation of the turbulence criterion developed for operations to offshore platforms (see CAA Paper 2004/03) using archive wind tunnel data and operational data collected via Bristow Helicopters helicopter operations monitoring programme (HOMP). The second part covers the review of the CAP 437 0.9 m/s vertical wind component criterion which, ultimately, provided the justification for its removal.
