The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) have made positive changes to the way the UK regulator works, improving the faith of the North Sea Helicopter industry. Energy Voice has reported that the operators have had issues with the amount of audits being done and how they were being filled with more of what people wanted to see, rather than what was actually happening.
Because of this, it is a challenge for the CAA to ensure people that they are doing the correct things. They have now changed the audits to being performance based instead of compliance based.
Dave Howson, CAA’s policy specialist for research has brought up that although safety protocols such us flotation systems and prohibitions on flights during unsafe sea conditions have been correctly implanted, they are still lacking the implementation of safety and survival training.
