This thread is BS. Ever heard of Reba McIntire's crew? Airplane pilots, instrumented rated in instrument aircraft, fly into the ground on a regular basis. Professional and civilian pilots of fixed wing and rotorwing aircraft are subject to the same poor decision making. The helicopter is a commercial tool used for many things and the skills of the pilots are varied, professional, and up to the task. 


When helicopter instrument skills are necessary for the job, these  pilots are up to the skill. We have flown approaches, using weather radar, down to 200 and1/2 for years in Alaska. No big deal, but it does take skill.


Airplane pilots that believe helicopter guys can't fly intruments don't know what they don't know.
