Helicopter point in space operations in controlled and uncontrolled airspace

Generic safety case
Helicopter low level route operations in controlled and uncontrolled airspace

This document presents the results of the safety assessment for helicopter Point in Space (PinS) approach and departure operations in controlled and uncontrolled airspace.

This generic safety case covers the different lifecycle stages of the change from definition to operation.

Part I of this document is the generic safety case report which includes all the details/rationale for the safety assessment.

Two Safety Case Guidance Materials for the local deployment based on this generic safety case report are provided in Part II for PinS departure and in Part III for PinS approach. Part II and III are the main parts of the document to be used for the local deployment.

A local safety assessment should be conducted based on these documents to verify completeness and correctness of the generic safety case considering the local operational environment and any local specific regulation.

The Project Owner shall verify that the Safety argument presented in this generic safety case is applicable and acceptable for the local deployment. This safety argument should be presented and accepted by the Competent Authority.

The deployment of helicopter PinS operations is a multi-actor change and therefore requires coordination between different stakeholders (service providers, heliport/landing site operator and helicopter operators). This coordination is essential to ensure a safe deployment.
