Safety still a “priority” one year on from offshore helicopter safety report


Safety remains an "absolute priority" one year on from the publication of a report addressing issues on offshore helicopter flights. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA)'s CAT-1145 report was released on February 20, 2014 and listed 61 actions and recommendations aimed at addressing accident prevention for workers travelling offshore by helicopter. It comes one month after the CAA said there is still work to be done to improve flight safety.

The body said many of the safety objectives it had set last year had already been met such as emergency breathing systems and cancelling flights in the most extreme sea conditions. It said the safety of those who travel in offshore helicopter flight is “paramount”.
