The helicopter industry is facing critical challenges, and its future depends largely on how we train both new and experienced pilots. Check pilots and flight instructors bear the responsibility of ensuring that pilots are trained to apply sound risk-management skills while under pressure. This session will cover practical techniques for such training, including preflight risk assessment for flight training, scenario-based training with an emphasis on risk-management strategies, and the development of personal minimums above and beyond the regulated guidelines to help mitigate risks effectively.
