You're expecting alot. Critical thinking comes far and few between in the depths of the helicopter industry. Helicopter pilots especially HAA are a crude poorly knowledged crowd who found themselves in an EMS job because well it was just there and easy to get, kept them at home and sometimes the allure of a flight suit and helmet and hot nurses. They aren't too cerebral either when it comes to researching history and decision making, and the repetitve accidents prove that. They are otrocious IFR pilots as well. I have learned that helicopter pilots are much more in common with bulldozer operators and semi truck drivers than they are professional aviators.
