Navigating the International Civil Aviation Organization

As designated representative to the International Federation of Helicopter Association (IFHA), Callan was nominated and approved by the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Air Navigation Council to serve as member of the Aerodrome Design Operations Panel, the Flight Operations Panel, and the Instrument Flight Procedures Panel. Matt will demystify ICAO, a specialized agency of the United Nations that develops and promulgates standards and recommended practices (SARPs) for international air navigation and transport to ensure safe and orderly growth of the international aviation industry.

Date: Tuesday, March 5 Tuesday, March 5 | 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Track(s): Operations, Pilot
Instructor: Matt Callan, HAI
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO
Navigating the Legal Process of an Aviation Accident

This session will enhance attendees’ awareness of the nuances of the legal process in the event of an accident, including:

  • The amount of preparedness advisable in advance of an accident event
  • How to respond when an accident occurs,
  • Working with authorities and the array of evidence to be sought and preserved
  • Traps and pitfalls for the unwary
  • The importance of effective counsel throughout the process.

Popp will share his insights on what factors can create a different outcome during the fallout from an accident. The helicopter industry is a target for, and sometimes victim of, litigation and huge verdicts, so an understanding of what counts from a legal perspective in a crisis is critical.

Date: Wednesday, March 6 Wednesday, March 6 | 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Track(s): Operations, Pilot
Instructor: Gregory A. Popp, Hassell-Legal, P.A.
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO
New eVTOL Codes, Regulations, Guidelines, and Good Practices for Heliports and Vertiports - 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.

We will examine the current state of progress of aircraft certification with the FAA on this next generation of aircraft. Issues related the new EVTOL landing area regulatory and operational challenges and how the FAA, the National Fire Protection Agency, and the American Society for Testing and Materials are planning for them.

Date: Tuesday, March 5 Tuesday, March 5 | 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Track(s): General Safety, Operations, Pilot
Instructor: Ray Syms, HeliExperts International LLC
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO

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!

Operational Considerations for PPE

There is a great deal of misunderstanding when it comes to owning and using a flight helmet. Most civilian flight crews have not had formal training in aviation life support equipment or other personal protective equipment (PPE). In addition to helmets, we will look at the selection and proper care of flight suits, undergarments, boots, and gloves.

Date: Wednesday, March 6 Wednesday, March 6 | 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Polarimetric Radar Suitable for Sensor-Fusion Enhances Flight Safety

When it comes to sensing obstacles in the low-altitude environment, Ladar or Lidar can only classify on the basis of imagery and is unfortunately weather dependent. Radar brings the unique ability to classify hazardous obstacles on the basis of their polarization properties, provided the full polarization ellipse can be measured, and it is not weather dependent. Putting these two capabilities together to provide a comprehensive sensing solution through data fusion has always been impractical in terms of cost. This is not the case anymore. A nonscanning cost-effective polarimetric radar that can support a fusion solution has been demonstrated.

Date: Tuesday, March 5 Tuesday, March 5 | 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Track(s): General Safety, Operations, Pilot
Instructor: Yuval Barnea, RodRadar
