We are beginning to realize that we need the ability to send pertinent information to helicopter operators who fly low-altitude operations. Included in this group are EMS operations, helicopters that may be used for construction, utility, law enforcement, news media, forestry, fire fighting, etc., as well as agricultural operations.
There is also the possibility that we may have the opportunity to advise these type operators concerning current and future MET tower construction.
Therefore, we have added a new choice in your Email Notification Preferences area on your My Preferences / Profile page on FAASafety.gov. When you check the Helicopter Operations box, you will receive occasional email that may be appropriate for helicopter operators, pilots and mechanics.
We also invite you to take this opportunity to use our new Security Questions feature on FAASafety.gov. Please log in and go to your “My Preferences/Profile” link (under the Email & Password tab) to create your own security questions with answers. After April 30th, you will be able to use this feature to change your own email address and/or password. You will also be able to log in to your account using this feature if you've forgotten your password or changed your email address.
Thanks again for your attention to aviation safety!
