NHV Group in Aberdeen hosted the much-revered “NHV Family Day” on Saturday 13th of August. Since the pandemic stalled any events and celebrations for two years, it was glorious to once again invite NHV staff and clients back with their families to our base where we could show off our fantastic facilities and aircraft at Dyce, while enjoying the precious summer weather with a BBQ, bouncy castle and fun games.
Our base includes office and engineering facilities as well as our aircraft hangar where we displayed the magnificent Airbus H175 Helicopter. Guests were able to speak to the pilots about their experiences flying across the North Sea to the various offshore platforms that we service on a daily basis. Also present were the engineers who ensure the aircraft are safely maintained along with the office team responsible for the smooth running of day-to-day operations.
Charni Greenacre, the Base Manager for the Aberdeen operations at NHV Group, said: “It was a great opportunity to show our guests the NHV operations at this informal occasion. We are passionate about promoting the different roles within NHV, so it was the perfect time for guests to chat to the pilots and engineers and gain some insight into our industry. We enjoyed the chance to show off the aircraft that carry passengers offshore and all the various behind the scene facilities that ensure the smooth running of our operations.”
Mark Beveridge, Operations Director at Aberdeen International Airport added, “We are delighted we could help facilitate the NHV Family Day at our airport and airfield. Being able to experience the operations of an international airport is a privilege and this was a much-missed event on the NHV calendar, so it was great to see it back!”
Alongside Aberdeen Airport representatives, the Scottish Ambulance Service, Police Scotland and Survival Suit suppliers Survitec joined NHV in creating a fun, family atmosphere and a huge sense of a professional yet friendly community.
