IHST: 2014 a Pivotal Year For Helicopter Safety
Fourteen years of accident data reveal that total U.S. civil helicopter accidents have decreased about 25 percent since the International Helicopter Safety Team (www.IHST,org) was established in 2006. From 2000 to 2005, an average of 186 to 190 helicopter accidents occurred each year in the United States. That annual average decreased to 170 during 2006-2007, to 156 during 2008-2009, and to about 139 to 140 annual accidents during 2010 to 2013.
