Helicopter Transportation Services
Bristow Group provides helicopter transportation to the offshore oil and gas industry, search-and-rescue (SAR) services, aircraft support services including helicopter maintenance, modification or repair, and helicopter pilot training.
Bristow is an industry leader in helicopter transport of personnel to offshore production platforms and drilling rigs and has earned its reputation as a leading civilian supplier of search and rescue services and military rotor wing training due to its long history of safe flights.
As part of its commitment to Target Zero Accidents, Complaints and Downtime, Bristow is pursuing a strategy to continually upgrade and renew its helicopter fleet, ensuring that its clients benefit from helicopter transportation using the latest technologies to ensure the safety of their employees. This is especially important as oil and gas companies continue to develop in remote locations and deeper waters.
Bristow has led the helicopter transportation industry with several significant safety and technology-related “firsts” that contribute to the company being the premier choice for clients. These include being the first to develop and field HUMS (Health Usage Monitoring System), first to develop, test and evaluate HOMP (Helicopter Operations Monitoring Programme) for flight quality (safety), and first to develop and certify a TCAS II (Traffic Alert Collision Avoidance System) for large helicopters.
In the area of helicopter pilot training, Bristow Academy has grown into the world’s largest commercial helicopter training service provider.
