10. Is IFR for everyone really the answer?
from By Mark Huber
From Jan. 28:
A coalition of industry trade groups recently released a white paper advocating easier instrument flight rule, or IFR, flying for Part 27 helicopters — those weighing under 7,000 pounds. The goal is to combat the perennial problem of helicopter meets cloud, helicopter meets ground, and people die — either by loss of control or controlled flight into terrain. It remains a major cause of all helicopter EMS accidents and a leading cause of all Part 27 helicopter accidents.
