HeliMedia ensures that customers gain the knowledge and skills required to integrate, operate and maintain systems.

We believe expert training is a critical and central element in achieving full operational mission success. Without it, customers and their operatives may be exposed to issues that, with correct training, would be simple and easy to understand and override.

At its core training facility, near Staverton Airport, Gloucestershire, HeliMedia has certified professional trainers and instructors. Their task is to ensure that customers gain the knowledge and skills required to integrate, operate and maintain systems. Training can be offered either at HeliMedia or on-site at customers’ facilities in the UK and internationally.

Systems Training

As part of its commitment to its customers and partners, HeliMedia often delivers systems training for equipment and technologies used in some of the more complex mission systems. This may include training for using mapping equipment or communications equipment.

Systems Training tends to be bespoke and tailored to a customer’s specific requirements and is carried out either at the customer’s site or at HeliMedia’s facility.
