There are two key helicopter safety events in the next month or so, both of which Aerossurance will be attending.

On 4 June 2014, Oil & Gas UK will be holding its annual Aviation Seminar on 4 June 2014 at the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre.  Topics to be discussed are:

  1. Are we rebuilding UK offshore workforce confidence in the safety of daily helicopter operations?
  2. What more can be done to ensure that we provide safe, efficient and reliable helicopter services in support of offshore oil and gas operations?

Places are selling out fast.  For more details see:

Meanwhile in London 3-4 July 2014 there will be a landmark conference on the introduction of automation to helicopters titled:  Technology: Friend or Foe?

The Royal Aeronautical Society is uniquely placed to bring interested parties together to discuss and influence ways in which helicopter design, operation and training can be further improved.  The importance of human factors will be theme, from the need for human centric design to the need for effective operational procedures, crew training and cooperation. The keynote addresses will be given by Mark Swan, Head of the UK CAA’s Safety and Airspace Regulation Group, and Captain Tim Rolfe, Director, Quality, Safety & Standards, Bristow Group.  However, the programme is who’s who of highly respected experts.

Aerossurance is a member of Oil & Gas UK and our founder is a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society.
