Previous Flight Reports

Welcome to my monthly report to HAI members. Viola’s Flight Report—or VFR—will update you on some of the work the HAI staff is doing on your behalf.

It’s essential that we share with you the work we’re doing. Whether we’re addressing new or existing regulatory matters, advocating on your behalf for a strong and vibrant international industry, or preparing for next year’s HAI HELI-EXPO, please know that the goal of the HAI staff is to always support you and help keep your rotors turning.

The FAA has mandated that all commercial carriers implement a safety management system (SMS) for their operations, a ruling that will require more than 2,500 US operators to implement an SMS over the next two to three years. Watch this month’s video to learn more about VAI’s SMS solutions as well as a host of other safety resources designed to help you manage risk and prevent accidents.
