Step Change in Safety member company CHC Helicopter opened the door to their Aberdeen operations on Saturday, 14 July, providing 250 oil-and-gas offshore workers and family members with an up-close look at the people, aircraft and safety processes behind CHC’s helicopter services.

The long-planned event beneficially coincided with recent EASA and U.K. CAA regulatory actions that will enable EC225 aircraft to soon resume overwater service.  According to CHC, the open day was designed for passengers and their loved ones to meet and interact with the company’s pilots and engineers, and to tour its terminal and hangar.  Visitors had the chance to board an S92 aircraft, peek into the cockpit and understand what is involved with preparing to fly on a helicopter.
