Helideck Inspection & Certification
Friction Tests are mandatory for offshore helicopter landing areas in accordance with the UK CAP 437 and the UAE CAAP 71 to ensure that helideck surfaces are skid resistant to both helicopters and personnel.
We are approved by the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) to perform Friction Tests and accordingly officially certify helidecks in the UAE.
Our Friction Tests are carried out using the Findley Irvine Helideck Mirco Grip Tester which is compliant with both the CAP 437 and CAAP 71.
Our inspectors are also fully trained by the Findley Irvine as per the GCAA requirements.
