As E&P continue moving into ultra-deep water, aviation related rules and guidelines are continuously changing to ensure that the operational safety requirements are being met. This involves constantly reviewing helideck compliance issues which could be tedious for our customers to track. To give our customers peace of mind, AOPL is introducing our very own annual inspection packages. Customers who opt for this annual inspection package can ensure that their helidecks and equipment are fully compliant and updated with the latest regulations after expiration of the standard warranty. Each package covers a 3-year period commencing from the expiry date of the initial contractual warranty.
As of May 2015, we are pleased to announce that UK CAA International (CAAi) now validates Aluminium Offshore helideck inspection reports in accordance with UK CAA CAP437. CAAi is a globally recognized aviation consultancy and is a wholly owned subsidiary of the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA). This partnership adds new value to the extensive list of AOPL helideck after-sales services that will assist our clients with enhancing their maintenance programs.
Our inspections include:
- Helideck operation and safety
- Friction testing
- Markings inspection
- Helideck structure and equipment inspection
- OFS and LOS compliance check
- Verifying of required documents
