Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today it has expanded its leadership team with the addition of Captain Renato Clark as its Operations Director.
Clark has more than 25 years of flying and management experience within the Brazilian military and the offshore oil and gas industry. Prior to joining Helivia, he held key positions with two major operators in Brazil. Helivia says it will utilize Clark’s vast knowledge of industry best practices to continue building upon the company’s high standard of safety, compliance and ethical behavior.
“One of Clark’s first actions was to engage us with the International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST) in Brazil,” said Greenwich do Brazil’s President John Fenton. “Helivia will be one of only three operators in Brazil, contributing to such an international committee. This reinforces our commitment in the effort to reduce the international civil helicopter accident rate by 80% by the year 2016.”
IHST is a team of government and industry leaders formed to address the factors affecting an unacceptable international civil helicopter accident rate. Helivia representatives will be participating in various committee meetings, assisting in unofficial investigations of root cuases of accidents as well as reanlaysis of findings and recommendations from such investigations. Additionally they will help spread IHST’s philosophy, safety toolkits, etc., within the Brazilian helicopter community.
