Vuichard Recovery: A Better Way Out of Vortex Ring State - 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.

Through the years, settling with power or the vortex ring state has caused much equipment damage and numerous injuries and deaths. A new recovery technique that is much more efficient in terms of altitude loss has been developed and tested over a period of time in Switzerland and the United States. The Robinson Helicopter Company has been teaching this new technique for two and a half years. This instructional session will explain in detail this new technique.

What the FRAT? - 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.

Flight risk assessments are a misunderstood tool that is often treated as just more paperwork to file. Why should I complete a flight risk assessment tool (FRAT)? Do I have to do it? When should I do it? Who should see the completed FRAT?

The power of a FRAT cannot be realized without understanding the answers to these questions. This session will help operators and aircrew see flight risk assessments as a welcome exercise that benefits their operation instead of as another piece of dreaded red tape.

Date: Tuesday, March 5 Tuesday, March 5 | 3:45 PM - 4:45 PM
Track(s): Maintenance, Operations
Instructor: Christopher Young, Airborne Public Safety Association
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO

What’s 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.

Track(s): Maintenance, Operations
Instructor: Christopher Young, Baldwin Aviation Safety and Compliance
