HCA is the first port of call for clients whose helidecks:

  • Do not meet the criteria of CAP437
  • Are the subject of proposed changes.

At Helideck Certification Agency, we keep up to date with the latest helideck regulations and requirements in order to offer clients the most comprehensive consultancy service possible. Our aim is to provide the best advice and ensure the authorisation process is completed quickly and efficiently.

Using our extensive industry knowledge we ensure that any new or proposed changes to existing helidecks not only meet the criteria of CAP437, but also consider the practical operating conditions of the host installation or vessel. We take into account surrounding structures that may affect the local atmospheric environment over the helideck or on the approach and take-off paths. Getting the helideck design right at the outset helps to ensure that helicopter operations are performed in a safe environment.

The highly qualified team at HCA are available to assist in helideck design, advising on key regulations and standards. Whether it’s a new build or there are major modifications being carried out to existing installations that may have an impact on helicopter operations, we will be happy to assist.

If you would like any more information on our helideck consultancy service, contact us today and speak to an industry expert.
