Rotor Safety Challenge Course (RSC)
Instructor: Bryan Smith, Airborne Public Safety Association
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO

Despite the significant increase in safety that safety management systems (SMS) have provided large operations, some aspects of SMS make them difficult for small businesses or private operators to implement. This session will offer an overview of new SMS information and tools that will allow small commercial and private operations to reap the same safety benefits large operators have come to enjoy. We’ll also look at new International Helicopter Safety Team SMS programs, tools, and techniques that can be employed to improve safety in small operations.
