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

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.
