CHC opens new hoist training facility
CHC Group has launched a new hoist training facility that is certified to train offshore workers, SAR hoist operators and technical crew members in on- and offshore-hoist operations, the company announced on 3 April.
The facility is located at CHC’s Den Helder base, and uses a training platform designed to resemble a Leonardo AW139 cabin. The facility can also be used to simulate Helicopter Hoist Operations (HHO) conditions from an AW169.
A one-day HHO course with an optional second day on the aircraft is designed to offer theory and practice to four to six candidates.
Mark Abbey, EMEA regional director, CHC, said: ‘We are delighted to see the new facility open and meeting the needs of new and existing customers. As a global helicopter operator, CHC has a long history of innovation, global standards and investment in new technology and this is a perfect example of how we continue to diversify to meet the needs of our customers across the SAR, oil and gas and renewables markets.
‘We have already received positive feedback on the training from our launch customers, which included one of the major global oil and gas super operators.’
