Helicopter Safety: Recommendations for Helicopter Industry
This booklet reprints in its entirety Part III, Safety Recommendations for the Helicopter Industry, from Helicopter Crash Litigation published by Lawyers & Judges Publishing Co., Inc. (Product Code #4912). The purpose of this separate printing is to make these recommendations more widely available in hopes that some will be implemented. Helicopter pilots are the easy and convenient scapegoat for almost every helicopter crash. But when those pilots are directed to undertake a mission at night with no night vision goggles (NVGs), no global positioning or terrain awareness and warning system, in blizzard conditions with howling winds, it is the operator or aircraft manufacturer which should shoulder much of the blame for an accident.
