Translation Posted November 1, 2008 Report Share Posted November 1, 2008 Here is the actual quote. Slight variation of what I said. "In developing the tool kit, the group aimed to win acceptance of the SMS approach—and by extension the group’s subsequent recommendations—from operators of five or fewer helicopters. Such operators make up the largest single segment of the civil helicopter industry, approximately 80 percent, and are involved in the vast majority of helicopter accidents" “The real target audience is the operator of two to five helicopters,” said B. Hooper Harris, manager of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Accident Investigation Division." ASL 4/2008 pg 11 I think stats are computed by accidents per 100,000 hrs. There are some fine small companies that started out from hobby beginnings or whatever, one accident however, will skew their stats big time as they don't fly the volume of a large operator.
