Monthly Report

As of: 1 April 2019

The USHST is a regional partner to the International Helicopter Safety Team.

USHST Goal: Reduce the U.S. helicopter fatal accident rate 20% by the end of 2019 (20% by 2020)

USHST Helicopter Safety Enhancement (H-SE)

Helicopter Safety Enhancement (H-SE) 91: Enhanced Helicopter Vision Systems
FAA and industry to research, develop, and promote the use of enhanced helicopter vision systems (EHVS) technologies (e.g. Night Vision Goggles, Enhanced Vision Systems, Synthetic Vision Systems, Combined Vision Systems, etc.) to assist in recognizing and preventing unplanned flight into degraded visibility conditions due to weather and to increase safety during planned flight at night.

FUTURE WORK: Intervention Strategy 157: FAA and industry to develop improved on-board wire strike protection devices. The intent is to expand the capabilities of currently available WSPS kits and potential new technologies. Note: The USHST is not pursuing this issue as it fell below our USHST “cut” line.
