DoD Releases Helicopter Accident Data

Non-Combat Military Helicopter Accidents 1985-2005: Causation and Mitigation Recommendations

Follow this link to view four presentations addressing non-combat military helicopter mishaps during the period 1985-2005. This is believed to be the first time this information has been released by the Department of Defense and the applicable service branch safety centers for public use. The presentations cover class A, B and C helicopter mishaps within the US Air Force, the US Army (one presentation covers mishaps in which human factors played a leading role; the other describes non-human factor mishaps); and the US Navy/US Marine Corps. The presentations are the work product of Colonel Peter Mapes, USAF, and the respective authors, and do not necessarily represent the views of the DoD, the safety centers or the four service branches. The presentations will be reviewed and validated, to the extent possible, by the International Helicopter Safety Team, whose charter is to reduce the world accident rate, both civil accidents and non-combat military mishaps, by 80 percent by 2016.
