Companies in the oil & gas, renewable energy and mining sectors, among others, often need to contract for air services. This may be for helicopter or fixed wing passenger transport requirements, for moving cargo, medevac, search and rescue, survey, surveillance or other types of specialist aerial work.
While aviation is a heavily regulated industry, regulations are simply a minimum standard, with many subtleties that can catch out the unwary & the effectiveness of regulators varies internationally. Ultimately regulation is no guarantee of safety nor does it absolve organisations of their legal duty of care to employees and contractors.
Successful aviation contracting requires expert care to manage the associated safety hazards & to ensure the dependable availability of the right aviation capability. Failure can cost lives & threaten the success of major projects.
