Active Risk Management
Our integrated risk management program far exceeds the industry standard for basic safety programs. Coldstream Helicopters actively promotes specialized programs dedicated to flight safety, specialized operations, and aircraft maintenance.
The purpose of our Safety Case’s and integrated risk management strategies are to demonstrate that the major hazards generic to rotor wing operations and specific to specialized operations have been identified and are being managed in compliance with the principles and requirements of the stated standards in which we plan to execute operations.
Satellite Tracking and Emergency Response
Coldstream Helicopters uses AFF (Automatic Flight Following). All of our aircraft are equipped with Satellite tracking units that combine tracking with Iridium based voice and text communication. This allows our dispatchers to see real-time information pertaining to the location of each aircraft via a secure web page, and to communicate with our pilots.
Each Helicopter is also equipped with FM radio network which allows clear communication with ground crews and other aircraft.
