take a real look at the real numbers. the accident rate is well on par with the rest of general aviation.


the reason you see so many accidents is that there are a hell of a lot of helicopters flying a hell of a lot of hours in what is essentially a pretty hazardous operation. compared to, for example, daytime gom flying, this is a complex and hazardous operation.


but when an haa goes in, there's media coverage out the wazoo, and because of the nature of the operation, everybody's heart strings get pulled...typical headline is like, "oh dear oh dear, another brave crew of air angels has flown to heaven while trying to save lives, and also doing what they loved!"....


the sensationalist media plays it because it sells. the general public gets teary-eyed because they don't know the facts. anybody who understands aviation and is involved in the profession of it shouldn't be bleating this nonsense along with the rest of the sheep.
