The transportation of passengers and cargo across the sea is subject to stricter conditions than those already provided for in commercial aviation. This is not the only reason why safety is paramount at HeliService. In addition to the most modern helicopter fleet over the North and Baltic Seas, this reliability is guaranteed by the highly qualified ground and flight personnel. Daily flight operations ensure HeliService pilots have a maximum amount of offshore flight experience. In addition, they undergo regular training in the world’s most advanced helicopter flight simulators to be prepared for extreme situations at any time.
HeliService’s offshore helicopter services include the carriage of cargo and material to offshore wind turbines and platforms, passenger transportation and the complete crew change. HeliService also includes wind farm hoist operations among its core offers. In addition, HeliService is supporting the work of the Alfred Wegner Institute on the RV Polarstern icebreaker with two Airbus helicopters.
