Special Instrument Procedures and Increased Risk Management

Safety management systems (SMS) are shaping how operators manage their risk. In bad weather, having a network of instrument procedures to private facilities or other locations can increase safety as well as the completion factor for a helicopter air ambulance or other operator. This session will feature an entire panel of “specialists” who will provide an overview of special instrument procedures, from request to operations.

Date: Wednesday, March 6 Wednesday, March 6 | 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Track(s): Career Development, Operations
Instructor: Martha Burgoon Parish, FAA
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO
The Connected Helicopter

Learn about OEM and aftermarket trends, products, and services for health and usage monitoring systems (HUMS), flight tracking, flight data monitoring/data analysis, and satellite communications, including enhanced ground proximity warning systems (EGPWS), traffic collision avoidance systems (TCAS), and enhanced-vision cockpits.

Date: Wednesday, March 6 Wednesday, March 6 | 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

The Future of Aviation: UAS Integration and Tracking in Low-Level Airspace

Integration of UAS into the airspace system is a problem yet to be solved. Everyone has ideas, but for this technology to reach its full potential, we need a way for each of us to be aware of and ultimately see (or sense) the other. This is a two-way street: we need to see them, and they need to see us.

Date: Tuesday, March 5 Tuesday, March 5 | 1:15 PM - 2:15 PM
Track(s): Career Development, General Safety, Operations, UAS
Instructor: Mike Becker, Becker Helicopters Pilot Academy

The Top Three Types of Fatal Helicopter Accidents — and How to Avoid Them - 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.

More than half of US fatal helicopter accidents fall into three categories: loss of control, inadvertent instrument meteorological conditions (IIMC), and low-altitude flight operations. In this session, we will review accidents from each category and discuss practical methods for avoiding similar outcomes. Let’s talk about how to stay alive and enjoy a long career in helicopter operations.

Date: Tuesday, March 5 Tuesday, March 5 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Touch-Down Autorotations

When it all goes quiet, the helicopter pilot needs to react immediately and automatically. Entering autorotation is only one part of conducting a full forced landing or precautionary landing procedure. This session will work through the various scenarios and offer discussion on managing a forced landing and surviving a crash.

Transportation Disaster Response: Family Assistance

Developed for commercial transportation officials, federal agency representatives, emergency managers, and staff of nongovernmental relief organizations, this session will help attendees to understand how any organization involved in accident response can most effectively support family assistance efforts.

Date: Wednesday, March 6 Wednesday, March 6 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Turbine Engine Hygiene

This session presents the technical and fiscal benefits of frequent rinsing and washing of the gas path components of a turbine engine. We will begin with a short explanation of the properties of water, including the various processes used to clean and purify water. We will review turboshaft operational theory, followed by an exploration of the safety and financial benefits of using ultrapure, distilled water for the removal of airborne contaminates ingested during operation into a turbine engine. The assertions about the safety and financial benefits are supported by a testimonial video, which is part of the presentation.

Track(s): General Safety, Maintenance
Instructor: Mike Broderick, Trace Worldwide
