Why Do Helicopters Crash?

Comments Off

Seven years ago the International Helicopter Safety Team was established to study helicopter accidents. Accident rates for all other aircraft were decreasing, yet the accident rate of helicopters continued to rise and this group sought to find answers in an effort to reverse the trend.

At the Aviation Safety Blog we are running a series examining the causes of helicopter crashes, and in part one we take a look at the creation of the IHST, the group’s findings and their helicopter safety recommendations. The IHST and other organizations strive to reduce the rate of helicopter accidents.

Unfortunately, crashes continue.
