Heli MetOps forecasts are provided three times per day for the day of operations. This allows you to make contingency plans for airport and offshore helideck closures.
Ensure that Met Observers can provide both a pre-flight weather report issued before take-off and a radio message detailing the current weather on the helideck.
StormGeo has over 10 years’ experience in delivering met-related training courses to various weather-sensitive businesses. This includes weather appreciation training for operational staff in the Oil and Gas, Offshore Wind and Aviation industries.
The course ensures that Met Observers can provide accurate weather reports to the standards necessary to ensure the safety of helicopter operations.
StormGeo's Heli MetOps is the complete decision support tool to successfully manage aviation logistics for offshore operations.
We are continuing to fine-tune the information we receive and combining it with other hydrodynamics and power management data to even better predict vessel movement. Supporting helicopter logistics is also an option as well. What is clear to us so far, however, is that the forecasting system provides significant potential for operators.Captain Suffield
