Flight Safety


"Flight Safety is a combination of various required conditions so a flight to reach its destination with the maximum safety. Therefore, flight safety is an interaction between rules, environmental influences and technical and human factors. Air safety is the desired optimal state in which operations are performed under conditions that can be controlled to the maximum possible and with minimum (tolerable) risk."

Stay away from the back of the helicopter.

Crouch while approaching or moving away from the helicopter.

Approach the helicopter from the side, but never outside the line of sight of the pilot. Many helicopters have low main rotor wings due to forming of the landing gear. For this reason, it is unanimously accepted for staff to approach from the sides of the helicopter. Passengers should always be aware that they should not approach the helicopter from behind, because of the risk of the tail rotor wings.

Tools must be moved horizontally below the waist - Never upright or over the shoulder.

Never try to catch a hat or any other object which has been drifted away by the down-wash of the rotor.

Protect your eyes with your hands.

If suddenly blinded by dust or object due to the downwash, stop and bend down. It is even better to sit and wait for someone to help you.

Never fumble or try to find your way to or away from the helicopter by sensing but only by watching.

Protect your hearing by wearing earplugs.
