Question

Hi all,

I am about to start my HPPL. I have always been interested in offshore ops. But how do you approach a rig? Fly over and the a circuit approach into the wind? Straight in or parallel approach? When and why do you use them? Any info much appreciated.

Thank you

Craig,

Have a think about walking before you attempt the world record 100m!

To even begin to describe something like this at your stage would be like explaining a heart bypass surgery in detail to a St Johns ambulanceman.

You’ll become familiar with phrases such as ‘sight-line- angle picture’ during your training for Confined Areas and Constant Angle approaches. Throw in a mixture of Visual/instrument technique and flying to PC2DLE parameters and you’re getting closer.
PM your email and I’ll share a link to a night rig approach video

it is a fair point. But I was just interested in the methodology.

PC2DLE is an Airbus invention and not an operational regulation

Welcome Craig to the take no prisoners world of PPRuNe. Had you said you were a bottle washer at your local and interested in the aviation business as a bystander the red carpet may have been rolled out.
