Rotor Safety Challenge (RSC)
Tracks: Operations, Pilot, Safety, Student
Instructor: Scott Tyrrell, US Helicopter Safety Team; Arvid Albanese, private helicopter pilot; Tim Tucker, Robinson Helicopter Co.; and Gordon Jiroux, Universal Helicopters
The US helicopter industry continues to experience fatal UIMC (unintended entry into instrument meteorological conditions) accidents, 100% of which are PREVENTABLE. To reduce that rate, pilots must be prepared to avoid and survive UIMC. This session will help participants do both. Instructional materials will include various weather tools and resources presented by highly respected helicopter safety professionals.
