Friday, March 07, 2014 (1530 reads)General

WASHINGTON DC – The International Helicopter Safety Team, in cooperation with safety experts from throughout the civil helicopter industry, has developed a new safety bulletin which offers pilots a thorough look at the importance of precautionary landings.

The new Safety Bulletin examines the perceptions behind precautionary landings and the concern that pilots have about this type of action. “Many pilots have perceptional fears for discontinuing a flight, and they fail to focus on the negative consequences of continuing a flight under frail conditions. In certain scenarios, these false perceptions can be a strong influencer over better pilot judgment. A number of perceptional fears may cause a pilot to press on, rather than to discontinue by executing a precautionary landing in response to unexpected conditions.”
