Industry news:

The market is a touch quiet at present, the first two quarters of the year were slow, however we did experience a pick up over the summer months primarily on the inspection side. As we move forward into the winter months, we expect the market to remain sluggish and hope to see a rebound in first quarter 2016.

From 1 April 2015, the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) will prohibit helicopter operators from carrying passengers on offshore flights, except in response to an offshore emergency, whose body size, including required safety and survival equipment, is incompatible with the nearest authorized underwater escape exit. 

Anyone intending to travel offshore via helicopter will need to have been measured by a trained measurer using approved callipers. The information will be entered into VANTAGE so that the seating allocation can be planned in advance for each flight.

From initially inquiries, OPITO approved (UK oil and Gas) and survival centers are offering the measuring service, if they are OPITIO approved they would then in turn register the measurements within your record on the Vantage system.

This is now in full swing, and clients are asking for copies of the certs to enable them to book personnel on helicopters.
