Helicopter Safety Group Briefing Today
The International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST) is holding a briefing from 1:30 to 3 p.m. today in Room 330B. The group will discuss the transition from data analysis to delivering and monitoring real world safety interventions in North America and other regions to achieve an 80-percent reduction in helicopter accidents by 2016. CEOs from several large helicopter manufacturers are endorsing IHST’s activities. IHST last year hosted the International Helicopter Safety Symposium in Montreal, which provided hard research on how and why accidents happen.
