Safety Guidelines

Weather condition: Weather plays a significant role in helicopter operations. We always check the weather forecasts and ensure that flying conditions are suitable. Helicopter tours may be canceled or rescheduled due to adverse weather.

Provide Enough Space for Landing: When taking the helicopter down from the air, make sure there is sufficient space for landing. Keep a safe distance from the chopper and its rotor blades and avoid rushing.

Proper gear: Wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the Helicopter tour. Dress in layers to adapt to changing weather conditions. Don’t forget to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, and a hat to protect yourself from the sun’s rays at higher altitudes.

Weight and balance: Helicopters have weight limitations, so follow the operator’s guidelines regarding luggage and personal weight restrictions. Ensure proper weight distribution to maintain the helicopter’s balance.

Pre-briefing from Pilot: Your pilot will provide you with important details about the rules and regulations guiding safety. Observe the briefing closely and follow the instructions given.

Entering the Helicopter from the Front: To provide the pilot with a clear view of your presence, always approach the helicopter from the front while getting in or out. It also improves general safety because visibility is maintained.

Follow the Pilot’s Signal: Before getting in or out of the aircraft, pay attention to the pilot’s signal or instructions. This reduces any potential dangers while ensuring that the necessary requirements are met.

Keep a Low Crouch: When the helicopter is nearby, keep a low crouch as you walk. This position aids in lowering the possibility of suffering an injury from potential threats like rotor blades.

Be Aware of Your Headgear: Avoid wearing any hats or caps that hang above your eye level. Loose objects can be easily blown away by the helicopter’s powerful airflow. Avoid attempting to find your headgear if it is missing.
