Helideck design & aviation facilities
Our team of experts have vast experience in helicopter operations at sea and can offer expert advice on all aspects of yacht helidecks. We are able to assist designers and naval architects by delivering practical and compliant advice based on various recognised standards such as ICAO Annex 14 Vol 2 and the REG yacht Code. All too frequently, there is conflicting requirements from Class and Flag so Helidecks can help ensure that helideck design and its facilities meet the relevant standards for both commercial and privately operated helidecks.
Having been involved with over 200 helideck projects since our formation we have amassed a wealth of knowledge and will always work with our clients to ensure we offer the best operational solution.
Audits, manuals & safety assessments
We offer a full range of safety management services including aviation facilities audits, bespoke helicopter operations manuals – underpinned by comprehensive helideck safety and risk assessments. Our credentials speak for themselves – appointed onto the UK MCA Large Yacht Helideck Safety Working Group in 2008, Helidecks helped develop the Large Yacht safety training syllabus, helicopter operations handbook and refuelling guide.

Helicopter Purchase Advice & Charter
If you are looking to purchase a new helicopter, we can help you through the overwhelming choices and decisions which you will face. Following a feasibility study of owner requirements, we will aide you in compiling a shortlist of suitable machines. Each aircraft is bespoke to an owner and must be optimised specifically for the owners ‘concept of operation’ from the very early stages of the order process. Getting this process wrong will make a dramatic difference to both operating convenience and costs of ownership.
Alternatively, should your helicopter not be available, we can also help arrange suitable charter helicopters at locations worldwide.
