Captain Malcolm Jacotine of M/Y Global was recently interviewed by Superyacht Owner about helideck training.

HeliRiviera has been responsible for the helicopter training on board M/Y Global.

As Captain Jacotine says in the Superyacht Owner article: ““Prior to the start of our helicopter operations, the crew received MCA approved Helicopter Landing Officer [HLO] and Helideck Deck Assistant [HDA] training which took place on M/Y Global.” Captain Jacotine continues: “Conducting the training on board had a number of benefits: a good number of crew were trained without the disruption of manning; all the crew were exposed in one way or another to helicopter operations; and the training could be tailored to our set up and equipment.”
