Scope of Services

Helideck Inspection

Our helideck Inspection covers all important aspects of the helideck as per CAP437 Edition 9, ICAO Annex 14 Vol 2 , CAAP 92-4(0) AND HSAC RP’s such as the physical characteristics of the platform and lighting, the rescue and firefighting equipment, the refueling system and a thorough review of the operational and quality processes. Our report covers all important aspects of the survey and data on your helideck and equipment. It gives a clear overview of the required corrective actions and full photographic coverage.

Helideck Friction Testing

With CAP437 certified Findlay Irvine helideck friction testers, we can perform an annual friction test on any helideck surface, such as:
  • Flat helideck surfaces with a micro-texture finish
  • Profiled helideck surfaces, typically constructed from extruded aluminum planks:
    • Legacy helidecks (i.e., helidecks commissioned before 01 January 2017)
    • New helidecks (i.e., helidecks commissioned on or after 01 January 2017)
As per CAA and CAP437 guidance our friction testers are continuous friction measuring equipment (CFME) testers providing automated data collection, storage, and processing facilities.
Our report clearly indicates any non-compliant areas that need to be corrected up to a detail of one square meter and is OEM calibrated annually.

Fueling System Inspection

With over 30 years of experience, our fueling system installation inspectors can certify your refuel installation in compliance to CAP437 and any local or client requirements.
The safe operation of the fuel systems and grounding system is verified and all maintenance, such as filter change, hose testing and gauge/flow meter calibration is reviewed for compliance.
Our inspection report covers all aspects of the fuel system and maintenance data and a detailed description and photographic evidence of any non-conformities found.

Perimeter Net Testing

When required, we can perform a drop test on your sacrificial perimeter net to ensure compliance and safe operations.
Although Drop tests can be performed the industry recommended testing type is going to Tensile Strength Break testing of a sacrificial wire strand.
Our lab is fully capable of performing this Break test with a comprehensive report produced and will track degradation from year to year.
