    HeliOperations is a trading name of Developing Assets (UK) Limited.

    It provides pilot training for Federal German Navy SAR service, from Portland Heliport, using 2 ex Royal Navy Sea King HU.5 and the services needed to support this work. This consists of Conversion to Type training (FGN crews will be familiar with the EC135 when they arrive), aircraft handling and more recently, Aircraft Captain training. The training provided is similar to that which had been provided by the Royal Navy but has been tailored by HeliOperations to reduce further courses in Germany to operate the Mk.41. Conversion to Role training is carried out in Germany on the Mk.41.

    HeliOperations trainers are ex-military QHIs and its Sea Kings are leased from the UK MoD, initially until Sep 2018.

    From 1 Jul 2017, HeliOperations became the owners of the Osprey Quays Portland Heliport site.
    HeliOperations has acquired the ex-Royal Navy Sea King HAS.6 simulator at RNAS Culdrose and has established a base there to operate the facility as part of its training curriculum.

    It has also established a depth maintenance facility for its Sea King fleet at Somerton, leaving more space at Portland for flying operations and line maintenance.
    On July 2018, the UK MoD approved HeliOperations facilities and a training programme for German Navy Sea King Search and Rescue crew operating ex Royal Navy Sea King Mk5 began
