My Two Cents Worth (November 2013 Issue) - Randy Mains

Posted by jhadmin

It appears the Australians put a higher value on patient safety than our FAA, NTSB and even Congress. That’s a pretty strong statement, isn’t it? Let me tell you how I arrived at that conclusion. When my article “The Power of CRM” appeared in the August 2013 issue of Rotorcraft Pro my wife, Kaye, and I were in Australia, flown there by the Aeromedical Society of Australasia so that I could deliver two keynote speeches at their 25th scientific meeting of HEMS operators. My first keynote address was entitled “US Aeromedical Accidents – What can Australasian HEMS learn from our Mistakes?” On the second day I delivered a keynote address entitled “CRM in Aeromedical Operations - Why CRM/AMRM (Air Medical Resource Management) is Absolutely Vital to HEMS Safety.” [Read More...]

Helicopter Emergency Medical Services And Weather Related Accidents

Posted by jhadmin

Helicopter Emergency Medical Services And Weather Related Accidents by Bryan Butler Many organizations are looking at ways to help make the Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) safer. The FAA is working with FAR Part 135 Operators along with Organization such as HAI, CAAMS and AAMT to bring in voluntary solutions. One simple solution to help alleviate many of the night HEMS Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) accidents is by changing the night VFR visibility minimums for FAR Part 135 HEMS Operations. But what should they be changed to? To help determine that answer let us first look at the root cause of many of our fatal HEMS accidents since January 2000. [Read More...]

Helicopter Pilot Insurance Coverage Trends

Posted by jhadmin

Helicopter Pilot Insurance Coverage Trends By Rick Lindsey Helicopter accidents can result in property damage, death or catastrophic injuries. When things go wrong, there is usually plenty of blame to go around. Read the headlines today and you’ll see that millions of dollars have been awarded in liability lawsuits. Helicopter pilots are trained, highly skilled, cautious and careful professionals who understand the importance of being proactive by double-checking all systems, safety checks, and other factors when piloting a helicopter. A pilot must be prepared to be thrust into a dangerous or unexpected situation at any moment and have the skills to react quickly. [Read More...]

REGULATIONS – Market Makers or Killers?

Posted by jhadmin

When Rotorcraft Professional asked me to write a piece on how regulation influenced the simulator marketplace, I truly believed that it would be a relatively straightforward task. However, as I began to review the history, I found there was virtually nothing written until the 1960’s. [Read More...]

Aircraft Registration Requirements Revamped

Posted by jhadmin

By Hunter Old - Once upon a time, you bought and registered an aircraft and it was registered for good as long as you continued to operate it. However, the days of a permanent registration for all aircraft are gone, causing a new headache for corporate flight departments everywhere. Under new FAA rules that took effect last fall, for all aircraft (including helicopters) that were registered before October 1, 2010, the registration expires according a table of rolling dates based on the month the current registration was issued. For example, if your current aircraft registration was issued between March and July of any year, its registration expires some time in 2011. Once re-registered, each aircraft registration then will have to be renewed every three years. [Read More...]
