This is just from an industrial point of view and a fantastic reminder, this post is not a place to be a NTSB investigator and post your theories
As an industry anytime we lose one of our own it rips through the community, everything from HEM pilots dying because the company wants them to fly and pressure them to flying into wires. Helicopter Pilot Network is a group of 15,000 pilots, mechanics and sales people on Facebook the primary object of this group is to connect others to jobs.
HPN Owner JP recently made an article on the group to challenge pilots how we do not take full advantage of helicopters. Whether we think the weather is bad or good.
The challenge is out, if you have to don’t hesitate to land your helicopter this actually began really great conversation between pilots with 24 thousand hours to pilots with 150 hours.
A good friend of mine had to share her story
Pilots from all over had share their stories about landing in unusual places, everything from on a an Arbys parking lot to some one backyard with their CH-47.
This is a fantastic reminder and a great way to let people know as helicopters we have the ability to land and a community coming together to fight for each other. We want to make sure everyone wakes up tomorrow.
