TRAINING

In any precision teamwork-oriented task, comprehensive training is a critical part of risk mitigation. Helicopter Human External Cargo is an operation that demands the highest levels of communication and teamwork to ensure risk remains low.

When selecting a training provider for HEC, we believe strongly in selecting a provider with in-depth experience in different types of HEC operations, as well as intimate knowledge of the specific equipment used for the operation, which can reduce human factors risk.
