Monday, May 09, 2011 (10100 reads)General

The International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST) has just released the new IHST Maintenance Tool Kit developed by the European Helicopter Safety Team with support from members of the International Safety Team.  The Maintenance Tool Kit is intended to provide helicopter operators with a framework of guidance material to ensure that they can safely maintain their aircraft in airworthy readiness for operations in the most cost-effective manner possible. No matter what size company or how many helicopters are involved, it is essential for all the stakeholders, including the owners, operators and their customers, to agree on how maintenance is to be done and to document that agreement to assure a shared understanding and consistent execution.
