Offshore Helicopter Operations - Gulf of Mexico 821366

The Gulf of Mexico along the Louisiana and Texas coasts, is a vast area requiring helicopter transportation for oil and gas exploration and production workers. Aviation services from the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Weather Service have been minimal until recently. A new aviation network in the Gulf of Mexico has been developed and is now being imple­mented. This communications, navigation, weather, and potential surveillance system is improving the safety of flight for 36, 000 offshore workers.
