Aug. 1, 2013, Alexandria, Va. - So, how is your day going? Mine was not that great. I spent it reading National Transportation Safety Board helicopter accident reports. I don’t know about you, but my level of frustration is at an all-time high.
I learned to fly helicopters in 1986. The summer before I made the transition from seized-wing to helicopter, I was working on a Gypsy Moth spray program in the Bancroft, Ont., area where I was flying a Cessna 172 as a “pointer pilot.”
Years ago when I cross-endorsed into the rotary-wing world, I didn’t think I was leaving a fixed-wing career behind so much as expanding my aviation skills.
When was the last time you showed up at work drunk? OK, allow me to rephrase the question.
The judicious use of a control hierarchy may be an ideal solution to create a sound hazard and risk management plan at any organization.
