Phpa Human Factors Safety Conference

Recommended Posts

PHPA has finalized the following agenda for its upcoming Human Factors Safety Conference in Biloxi, Mississippi. This first conference is being used to lay the ground work for the annual event which hopes to develop new and innovative ideas on ways to prevent human factors accidents. By involving the working line pilots directly in the process, PHPA hopes to generate new and unique ways of looking at prevention techniques and eventually developing different approaches to the prevention of human factors accidents which are tailored to specific areas of the helicopter industry. More on the conference details can be found at http://www.autorotate.org/autorotate/safety2004/index.html


If you are a helicopter pilot interested in ways to make our profession safer, please join us in Biloxi.
