This article is focused on the helicopter approach to landing on offshore objects. It describes helicopter approaches and specially designed approaches for the sea. The evaluation of safety in aviation is shown with applications to SOAP approach as well. The helicopter approach to the landing can be considered as part of aviation, which has long been neglected because helicopters are represented only by a minuscule percentage in the overall volume of civil aviation. Because of this, the approach procedures were not designed especially for helicopters, but this type of aircraft with a vertical take-off and landing has irreplaceable role in certain operating situations.
