Greetings from CAA Bangladesh, Sir would you mind to let me know if there is any validation requirements by ICAO for helicopter VFR flight procedure. Thank you for your time and great support to community through https://www.mais-learning.com/ Posted on Behalf of CAA Bangladesh

If you are talking about PinS (Point in Space) procedure it will require flight validation by an authorized flight validation pilot, PinS is an instrument flight procedure even if it terminates in a visual maneuver, you will use the same principles as per validating any other instrument approach. In this case you need a helicopter pilot that is also a flight validation pilot if I am not mistaken.
I hope this clarifies a bit more on the issue and of course, also probably if you establish a specific VFR corridor even if VFR you will need to do some sort of validation as in this case you are prescribing a path for someone else to fly unlike true visual flight in which the responsibility is completely on the pilot in command (PIC)
Now this is no legal advise 😁
