Communication with the helicopter pilot 

One of the key issues in helicopter safety, is that everyone involved understands the content and sequence of what is happening , and will happen during mission. Also what the helicopter pilot reckon you or others participating in the mission should do. The communication should be clear, obvious and extensively about all conditions.

When ordered you informed about :

  • Type assignment : Taxi , download , photography, sightseeing , etc.
  • Number of passengers and weight , or weight of load, number of lift etc.
  • Landing Space : Wires of any type, soil conditions , trees , poles etc.

  • What to do when the helicopter arrives.
  • The helicopter’s capacity. Do you get what you ordered ?
  • Requirements applicable to the weather . – Visibility, cloud base,wind strength and direction .

  • Alternative solutions if necessary.
