Safety Case for Flight Crew Operating Manuals

HeliOffshore released new videos about implementation of Flight Crew Operating Manuals (FCOMs) to help helicopter operators to achieve tangible safety benefits

Safety Case for Flight Crew Operating Manuals
HeliOffshore, April 02, 2019 - Effective flight path management is a critical element in achieving safe offshore helicopter operations.

The automation technology in modern aircraft can positively contribute to this, and especially when flight crew have a complete understanding of how designers intended for these complex systems to be used.

This is where the implementation of Flight Crew Operating Manuals (FCOMs) can make a big difference in helping operators to achieve tangible safety benefits. You can hear more about this in a new video produced by HeliOffshore.

FCOMs also support pilots in achieving a high degree of operational standardisation that further strengthens safety. Data supports HeliOffshore’s conviction that FCOMs are the right thing for safety, and so does the experience of the growing number of operators who are implementing the manuals.

Leading offshore helicopter industry stakeholders are increasingly aligned over the case for implementing FCOMs. In HeliOffshore’s latest video, oil company safety leaders from the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers give us their perspective on why they support FCOM implementation as a priority action to achieve enhanced safety in areas where it matters most.
