The past few years have seen a number of major accidents and incidents which have highlighted issues with onshore helicopter operations in the UK and more broadly. Whilst the offshore sector has seen a great deal of focus and industry investment the onshore sector has remained the sum of its disparate parts and difficult to pull together.
This 2-day conference aims, following the publication of the CAA onshore safety report, to examine the factors affecting onshore helicopter safety, how these might be mitigated and where positive steps can be taken across the community to improve outcomes. It recognises the efforts of IHIST, EHEST and the BHA in working towards a similar end but takes a fresh aerospace engineering focussed view on the key issues.
