Heli Flight Safety

Recommended Posts

Am I wrong? Is just because I pay closer attention to the "heli-news"? Or are there WAY more incidents involving rotorcraft than fixed wing? The 206 near Vancouver last month that took out the exchange student....the one in Quebec in the other thread here...another 206 went down near where I live this past winter on Lac St. Louis....


What gives?


I'd love to take flight training and become a pilot (for the fun of it)....but I've got two little kids...I plan on being around for a while!

Hi MMike -


The simple fact is that very few fixed wing aircraft land in confined areas and do the stuff we do.


In any case, most accidents these days are due to people doing stuff they shouldn't. Note I said "most" - there are some genuine accidents where nothing could really have been done, but as long as you are careful and everyone else around you does their job right, I wouldn't worry too much.


No-one leaves this Earth without The Management's permission anyway!
