Americas – Air Transport
Air Transport is any activity related to aviation belonging to Shell or under Shell’s responsibility. It includes fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft as well as remotely piloted aerial systems (RPAS) used by Shell, its contractors, or subcontractors while providing support for Shell business requirements. The aviation services covered include, but are not limited to, the transport of company employees, contractors and subcontractors; transport of material & equipment; data collection; emergency response; survey; and aerial observation and/or surveillance. Operations and Air Transport Facilities used to conduct those operations are also in scope; including airports, airstrips, helidecks, helipads, and heliports.
Compliance with the Shell Group Requirements for Aircraft Operations (SGRAO) is mandatory for all aviation activities, assets, & facilities including those conducted/owned by third parties regardless of contract mode. Mode 3 contract operations with aviation activity or assets and purchase of data collected by aircraft are included. Means of compliance shall be as stated in the SGRAO unless alternative means are specified and agreed. Means of compliance differing from the SGRAO requires the approval through the Business Unit’s Air Transport Technical Authority.
