From January 2019 to January 2020, the US helicopter industry experienced a fatal UIMC (unintended entry into instrument meteorological conditions) accident, on average, every 92 days. To reduce that rate, pilots must be prepared to avoid and survive UIMC. This session is designed to help participants do both. Instructional materials will include various weather tools and resources, and the class will review industry standards for proper UIMC procedures, organizational safety assurance programs, and precautionary landings. By the conclusion of the session, participants will have learned how to reduce the fatal-accident rate as it pertains to UIMC.
