Training Leaders to Take Flight

Bristow is a leader in helicopter flight training and engineering, offering the best training facilities in the world to help enhance flight knowledge. With more than six decades of helicopter experience, we train the best engineers and pilots with the most state-of-the-art technology and training, including being a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part-147 and Part-145 approved maintenance training organization.

Simulator and Training Facilities

Bristow Helicopters’ simulation hall in Dyce, Aberdeen is the only facility of its kind in the U.K. With an international reach, located near Aberdeen International Airport, Bristow’s state of the art simulator purpose-built center has full-size helicopter simulators which use advanced motion-compensation technology, combined with realistic visuals to replicate the experience of flying Leonardo AW189, Sikorsky S-92 and S-76 aircraft. Housing three flight simulators, six classrooms and specialist instructors, the theoretical and practical training facility is a vital resource for Bristow’s oil and gas, and Search and Rescue pilots; however, it is not only available to the company’s teams – the hall is available for use by third parties.

Please contact Denise Allan,, if you are interested in using our facilities.
