“US accident statistics reveal that a helicopter pilot who unintentionally continues VFR flight into IMC will very likely lose control of their aircraft and be dead within a median time of 56 seconds. We must join industry stakeholders to do everything we can to reverse this alarming and unacceptable trend.”

—Nick Mayhew, Industry Co-Chair, US Helicopter Safety Team
