The Best SMS Tool? YOU!

Much work has been accomplished in the aviation industry to promote the implementation of safety management systems (SMS). But a central concept of SMS is to enlist everyone — staff, managers, owners — in the safety process. Without their genuine involvement and commitment. an organization’s SMS frequently falls short of the intended goals, allowing safety hazards to remain unaddressed. Let’s discuss ways to ensure your organization’s people are truly active in promoting and executing your safety initiatives.

Helicopter Safety Enhancements: Loss of Control, IIMC, and Low-Altitude Operations

The US Helicopter Safety Team (USHST) has released safety enhancements on the top three factors implicated in fatal helicopter accidents in the United States: loss of control, inadvertent instrument meteorological conditions (IIMC), and low-altitude operations. In this session, we will cover specific safety enhancements developed by the USHST that you can implement back on the job to lower your risk of these types of accidents.

Maintenance Programs: Managing Risks and Asset Value

Maintenance programs allow operators to have predictable maintenance budgets. But many operators don’t realize that, in addition to eliminating the risk of unforeseen maintenance costs, enrolling in a maintenance program will also protect and even improve the residual value of the asset. In addition, maintenance programs can aid in human-factor risk reduction by scheduled maintenance planning and minimizing AOG (aircraft on ground) stress.

NTSB Helicopter Accident Investigations: Case Studies - Tuesday Option

To better meet the demands of busy schedules, HAI is pleased to offer this popular course twice, at different times on different days.

This session will present three case studies to illustrate different techniques and processes used during regional helicopter accident investigations by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Each investigation posed different challenges and required different methods of inquiry to determine the facts and develop the probable cause of the accident. During this interactive presentation, Silliman will tell the story of how each investigation developed and how the different NTSB investigators contributed to the solution. Come and see if you agree!
