As authors of CAP 437, we offer helideck manufacturers and marine engineers a helideck design review service. We review helideck design drawings against the requirements of the guidance, produce a report that covers the areas identified as non-compliant and offer recommendations to achieve compliance. This will prevent possible costly modifications at the latter stages of construction and installation.
We also offer a ‘Post Construction’ helideck audit ensuring the original design has been fully adhered too and nothing has been added either to the deck or in its immediate vicinity which could affect the safety of helicopter operations.
