HeliSpeed and NHV agree training maintenance partnership


HeliSpeed and NHV Group have agreed a training partnership.

Helicopter training provider HeliSpeed and rotary services company NHV Group have agreed a partnership to deliver helicopter maintenance training.

The partnership, drawing on HeliSpeed and NHV’s Part-147 approval covering both EASA and UK CAA standards, will improve the accessibility and quality of helicopter maintenance education, according to the companies. The partnership will offer trainees an expanded scope with B1.3, B2, and B2 differences on the AW139 helicopter variant.

The training will include flexible learning methods, plus the option for distance learning based on customer requests. Helicopter airframes will be used during practical courses at NHV’s bases in Norwich and Blackpool, UK.

“We are thrilled to partner with NHV to deliver cutting-edge helicopter maintenance training,” said Brian Hopkinson, Part 147 training manager at HeliSpeed. “This collaboration allows us to combine our expertise and resources to offer comprehensive, high-quality training.”

Frédéric Matton, NHV Academy Training manager, said: “The high-level expertise of HeliSpeed will enhance our AW139 type course capabilities. It’s an important step to offer both EASA & UK CAA customers with flexible solutions for this key helicopter type”.

The first course will take place from May 27th to July 5th. More information about the training programme is available from the NHV Academy.
