Wednesday, March 6 | | 10:00 am to 11:00 am
Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall, Room N255
Flight Operations Track
This presentation is a combination of practical knowledge beyond the Helicopter Flying Handbook and the research of the International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST) Analysis Team. This in-depth look at aeronautical knowledge, decision making, and understanding of limitations is ideal for all experience levels. This presentation evolved from extensive research for the industry publication, The Reality of Aeronautical Knowledge: The Analysis of Accident Reports Against What Aircrews Are Supposed to Know, by the session instructor, Scott Burgess.
Attendees will gain a higher level of operational and safety awareness related to their functions within a company. Actual accident reports are studied in-depth as they relate to specific points of aeronautical knowledge in order to develop an acute awareness of pilots in their environment. This course is an exceptional personal safety supplement.
