HHOP Training


As Heli Hoist Operations (HHO) are embedded into NHV’s DNA, we obtained a vast amount of experience in safely hoisting passengers onto a (dynamic) platform.

To ensure the safest conditions, NHV provides an extensive passenger training course, including both a ground as well as an in-flight training session. Having passed the ground course, a static mock-up of the helicopter is used to further prepare the passengers and have them become acquainted with the different procedures. Finally, to pass the overall course each passenger needs to successfully perform a series of hoist cycles.
