  • Adapt the Air Navigation Services to meet the operations of helicopters that travel in offshore oil prospecting and exploration.
  • Raise the Safety levels in offshore operations.

Expected Benefits

  • Increased airspace capacity.
  • Increased efficiency of Search and Rescue operations.
  • Reduction of the environmental impact related to the emission of CO2 and aeronautical noise.
  • Reduced workload of Air Traffic Controllers and Pilots.
  • Increased accessibility to oil platforms.
