Helicopter Scenario-Based Training: FAA Pegasas Research Update

The benefits of helicopter scenario-based training are the subject of an FAA Center of Excellence research project. This session will cover the types of helicopter scenario-based training concepts, risk management, and flight-training aspects of this project.

Date: Tuesday, March 5 Tuesday, March 5 | 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Track(s): Career Development, Operations, Pilot
Instructor: Dr. Steve Cusick, Florida Institute of Technology
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO
Helicopter Surviving Inadvertent Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IIMC)

This course provides the pilot with techniques and procedures to help avoid and survive an Inadvertent IMC event. In addition, the course is a valuable refresher and motivator to maintain IFR proficiency during the course of normal line operations. By the end of this course, clients will be able to:

  • State the major causes for IIMC accidents
  • List preflight and in-flight IIMC avoidance strategies
  • Describe effective Preflight Planning
  • Identify conditions that warrant a “no-go”, “turn around” or “land” decision
  • List best practices for surviving initial entry into IIMC
  • Describe the recovery procedures for an IIMC encounter.

Date: Tuesday, March 5 Tuesday, March 5 | 3:45 PM - 4:45 PM
Track(s): General Safety, Pilot
Instructor: Chris Willis, FlightSafety International
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO
HFDM 101: Airbus-Installed Vision 1000

Attendees will learn how to use the recorded flight data, cockpit imaging, and audio from the Vision 1000. We will look at the recorder to learn what it does, how to use it, and how to employ industry best practices to enhance operational safety and oversight. We will look at real-world examples and on-site demonstrations.

Date: Wednesday, March 6 Wednesday, March 6 | 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Track(s): Maintenance, Operations
Instructor: Casey DeLanghe, Appareo

Human Factors and Crew Resource Management

The client will become familiar with aspects of Crew Resource Management. Specifically, by the end of the course, clients will be able to:

  • State the importance of effective CRM
  • Explain how CRM makes us safer
  • List and describe the different CRM skill sets
  • Identify the impact of CRM performance on the outcome of the flight
  • Explain the historical development of CRM.

Date: Tuesday, March 5 Tuesday, March 5 | 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM

Instructor: Chris Willis, FlightSafety International
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO
Increase Focus to Increase Safety

Performing work with distractions or doing multiple tasks increases the risk of error significantly. This session will explain the vulnerabilities to error that can happen when pilots and mechanics try to complete multiple tasks at one time or perform tasks on autopilot. We will discuss what is happening to the brain during this time and how to help eliminate error by increasing focus.

Date: Tuesday, March 5 Tuesday, March 5 | 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Track(s): General Safety, Maintenance, Pilot
Instructor: Kim Hutchings, Volo Mission
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO
Living Proof

In this session, we will present an in-depth look at the factors that led to the accident that injured Dr. Barry Hyde, a former pilot and now a safety analyst for the FAA. Along with identifying the factors that led to the accident, this course looks at the steps that would have prevented it.

Date: Wednesday, March 6 Wednesday, March 6 | 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Track(s): Pilot
Instructor: Dr. Barry Hyde and Bravo, FAA
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO
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.

Date: Tuesday, March 5 Tuesday, March 5 | 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Track(s): General Safety, Maintenance
Instructor: Raymond Weiser, Jet Support Services, Inc.
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO
More Safety for Pilots with Vuichard Techniques

This session will present flying techniques and procedures that will lead to a significant reduction of accidents and incidents and may even save many lives. The techniques presented have been invented by Claude Vuichard during his career as a pilot in the Swiss Alps performing search and rescue and helicopter air ambulance missions. More and more operators are adopting these techniques to reduce the risks involved in helicopter flight.

Date: Wednesday, March 6 Wednesday, March 6 | 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Track(s): Career Development, Pilot
Instructor: Claude Vuichard, Vuichard Recovery Aviation Safety Foundation
