At HeliOffshore's second annual conference, members said they will undergo a review of the offshore fleet and determine any improvements toward an increased safety of operations worldwide. The review will be done in partnership with aircraft manufacturers, offshore operators, the oil and gas industry, regulators and organizations in the supply chain to the offshore helicopter industry. Members also agreed to speed up implementation of enhanced terrain awareness and warning systems in the offshore fleet by the end of 2017.
Despite the slowdown in demand for offshore helicopter services, both membership within HeliOffshore and attendance at its conference are up, according to the organization's press release.
