Training Makes the Safety Difference in Rotorcraft


Helicopters go where no other aircraft could. Often, helicopters must operate in difficult environments. Amid helicopter-hostile obstacles. At night. In bad weather. Or all of the above.

Constant and ongoing improvement in helicopter technology helps immensely – the number of helicopter accidents related to equipment failure has plummeted in recent decades.

Has your training kept pace? The FAA, insurance companies, helicopter manufacturers and your peers agree that training is essential to keeping your crew and helicopters safe.

The quality of your training is crucial. FlightSafety, the world leader in all types of aviation training, is easily the leader in helicopter safety training. We were the first to build and operate Level D helicopter simulators, and we give your training the benefit of our extensive experience and resources – from expert instructors to advanced simulation design. Our training support, including our famous customer service, is beyond compare.

But helicopter safety doesn’t end with well-trained pilots and maintenance technicians. Training must extend to the entire crew, and the training has to be specific to the way you use your rotorcraft. Check out FlightSafety’s range of industry-segment-specific training – all designed to keep your crews safe and your aircraft in the air.
