FAA working to bring big changes to helicopter safety
from By Mark Huber
The FAA recently announced it has tasked the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee's Rotorcraft Occupant Protection Working Group to look at possible solutions that would increase occupant survivability of older-design helicopters in an accident — particularly as they relate to blunt-force injury and post-crash fire. The group will be tasked with preparing a series of reports over the next six to 24 months, and there should be little doubt where the FAA is going with this.
