AeroDirections is a member of, and actively supports the efforts of HAI. We have provided training courses for HAI's HeliExpo Rotor Safety Challenge. At HeliExpo 2016 in Louisville, Kentucky, we first introduced our BowTie Method for Safety Risk Management course with nearly 80 people attending. At HeliExpo 2017 in Dallas, Texas, we expanded our offering to include the original course plus a second course for Applying BowTie Analysis to Audits and Investigations.
HeliExpo 2017 also launched our first exhibitor booth at HeliExpo where we met with many of our customers and other attendees, showcasing our services in IS-BAO auditing and advice, SMS implementation and training services and featured the BowTieXP product from CGE Risk Management Solutions and Q-Pulse from Ideagen, Plc. Our affiliate IS-BAO partners, Mentair Group also participated in the booth.
AeroDirections actively participates on the USHST and specifically on the Accident Scoring project where we are evaluating 52 fatal U.S. rotorcraft accidents that fall into the top 3 rotorcraft accident categories:
- Loss of Control - Inflight (LOC-I)
- Unintentional Instrument Meteorological Conditions (U-IMC)
- Low Altitude Operations (L-ALT)
As part of this initiative, AeroDirections is working with the project team members to develop BowTie diagrams representing the industry best practices for controlling the threats most likely to lead to accidents in these three categories. Model results will be made available to industry as they are completed. Stay tuned for more information!
As the central coordination point of International Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) for aviation, ICAO is the origination point for what often becomes regulations around the world when ICAO's input is enacted into law by individual countries around the world. ICAO is an excellent source of information pertaining to aviation safety. Some of their information can be found at the following links:
