By George Hatcher

We at Air Flight Disaster are always trying to learn from our mistakes, and your mistakes and everyone’s mistakes. Which is why we would applaud the following Helicopter Expo event “Lessons Learned from Helicopter Accident Investigations” even if Air Safety wasn’t our business.

Pilots and interested parties wanting to learn lessons from recent helicopter accidents should pay attention to the following event:

2014 HAI Rotor Safety Challenge

Event: Lessons Learned from Helicopter Accident Investigations

Date/Time: Monday, February 24, 8:00 am to 12:00 p.m. (PST)

Location: Anaheim Convention Center (Ballroom C, Level 3), 800 W Katella Ave, Anaheim, CA 92802

Participants: Vice Chairman Christopher Hart and NTSB senior air safety investigators

Senior investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board will hold a training session about the lessons that have been learned from several recent helicopter accident investigations at the 2014 Helicopter Association International’s Heli-Expo in Anaheim, Calif., next week.
Investigators will present case studies that emphasize NTSB safety recommendations related to helicopter maintenance, flight simulators, and flight recorders. The case studies will be followed by industry-led panel discussions on best practices in the industry. NTSB Vice Chairman Christopher Hart will provide opening remarks for the session.
