TRADITIONALLY, WE TELL YOU WHAT we’ve placed on the monthly issue’s cover in a sentence or two on our Table of Contents page. That would have been a challenge this month, since our cover is made up of a selection of 49 covers that have appeared on Rotor & Wing since it went into business with the January 1967 issue. Why not 40 covers for 40 years? That was the initial plan. But in reviewing...

According to the NTSB, during the last 10 years there were 48 helicopter accidents where the...

HUMAN ERROR. THAT’S THE COMMON EXPLANATION for helicopter accidents. We’ve all heard the statistics. Human error is the cause of 80 percent or more of all accidents. In a way, though, the problem is in the statistic itself. It’s been held as conventional wisdom so long — perhaps as long as man has found heavier-than-air vehicles to fly, and crash — that "human error"...

HELI-EXPO HAS GROWN APACE with the industry it represents. Just as operators and manufacturers are hard-pressed to field helicopters to meet all the demand before them, visitors to the annual gathering’s exhibit hall can barely find the time to see all the displays and products of interest.

GETTING THE MOST OUT OF training time is a difficult task unless you’ve prepared with flight planning, conducted an instructional flight briefing, performed deliberate flight execution, and accomplished a thorough debriefing.

Is There No End In Sight? No, there isn’t. At least according to Lynn Tilton.
