Aviation insurance provider USAIG (Booth No. 4907) has recently enhanced the benefits for its rotorcraft customers. Operators that insure through the company are now eligible for Performance Vector, a safety program that offers a range of programs to helicopter operators. Complimentary training includes human factors for pilots and maintenance technicians, Z-Coach sleep-enhancing strategies and tools as well as reimbursement for line service training. Flight departments can also choose from various training options that help maintain safety management system standards or prepare for advanced safety audits.

Among the options available are Safety Bucks, which offers rebates to operators that train with selected training centers. According to USAIG president and CEO David McKay, the company has distributed more than $5 million in Safety Bucks to help operators lower costs for annual simulator or in-aircraft flight-training proficiency. “In the end, for them and us, safety is the bottom line,” he noted.
