PEDs – Personal Electronic Devices – include things like tablets, mobile phones. laptops, smart watches and cameras, all powered by lithium batteries.
Under the guidance of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) we are introducing new guidelines and restrictions for carrying these items on board our helicopters.
From September 1, 2018, each passenger will be limited to a total of six (6) PEDs.
Some additional restrictions will also apply – for instance devices must have airplane mode active and be switched off. If they can’t be switched off they can’t be brought on-board.
Safety is always our first thought. We’ve developed a handy poster to help passengers understand what is and what is not permitted.
