As authors of the globally recognised CAP 437 (Standards for Offshore Landing Areas) and CAP 1264 (Standards for Helicopter Landing Areas at Hospitals), we are uniquely placed to advise on a range of topics regarding helidecks and heliports. We assist a wide range of industry partners to ensure products and services conform to the Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPS) contained in ICAO Annex 14 Volume II, and UK CAA guidance.

Conformity 
We assist a wide range of industry partners to ensure products and services conform to the Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPS) contained in ICAO Annex 14 Volume II, and UK CAA guidance.

Our reviews, guidance and support includes:

  • Helideck and heliport design, construction and commissioning
  • Approval of helideck and helipad lighting and other equipment
  • Helideck monitoring systems
Heliport and Helideck Design Reviews
We have provided heliport and helideck design reviews to organisations across the globe, drawing on the multidisciplinary expertise from across the UK CAA to ensure helideck and heliports meet the highest level of aviation safety standards.

Helidecks (offshore)
We review helideck design drawings against the guidance in CAP437. Our services include a report that covers the areas identified as non-compliant and offers recommendations on how best to achieve compliance. This report will help to prevent costly modifications during the latter stages of construction and installation.

Post Construction, we can complete a review of the helideck drawings to ensure that the final design is compliant with the standards. In particular, we help ensure  there is nothing relating to the overall design of the helideck and the obstacle environment that has potential to compromise the safety of helicopter operations.

Heliports (onshore)
Using our knowledge and expertise as authors of CAP 1264, we offer independent CAA advice and guidance on aviation matters during the design, construction and commissioning of hospital heliports to any NHS Trust in the UK.

We aim to ensure that the helicopters can operate safely and ensure that critically ill patients receive the very best care as quickly as possible. We provide advice and guidance on existing sites or new developments for all three types of heliport:

  • Surface Level
  • Raised (under 3m high)
  • Elevated (typically on top of a building)
CAA Approved Helideck Monitoring Systems
On behalf of the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA), we can certify and approve products against UK CAA standards.

We offer a Statement of Compliance Award for helideck monitoring systems (HMS) that meet the requirements of CAP437 Standards for offshore helicopter landing areas. This process entails a detailed review of the lighting product specifications and test/verification documentation plus an on-site visit to inspect the lighting installation in a representative environment.
