Rotor Safety Challenge Course (RSC)
Instructor: Jason Quisling, Air Methods Corp.
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO

It’s been said there are no new accidents. So why do we continue to make the same aviation mistakes? This session will use case studies and video to examine the answers to this question. In the process, participants will be introduced to the three elements of disorientation and how they create a loss of situational awareness; human factors; the top causal factors in accidents; and the need for error management training. We’ll also discuss the role standard operating procedures play in reducing risk during flight operations and explain the error chain and how it can be broken.
