Helimet

Helimet is a shared weather information tool used by the helicopter industry that supports the offshore oil and gas industry in the UK. The system was developed under the leadership of Oil &Gas UK as a cross industry collaborative aviation safety tool, where each companies regional weather information is validated and then shared with the helicopter operators and other Oil and Gas companies. The success of this collaborative tool has been such that the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has mandated it use by the offshore industry in the latest 2016 edition of CAP 437 (Standards for Offshore Helicopter Landing areas).
