Wow! Another incident. This is so sad. At least the cabin/seats still look good, and weren’t crushed! My thoughts and condolences to the victims.

It happened again. Maybe will see a change in procedures and regulations for helicopters! Now I see what @anon93248082 was talking about! Helicopter accidents sadly seem to be slowly increasing!

It will - If the reports starting off is right about wind I don’t think we’ll see any changes. With it being a Jet Bell I kinda have my suspicious on cause it but we shall see

People also don’t want their lives to end in tragedy!

I certainly don’t mind more regulations. I find most to be incredibly beneficial, and they are usually implemented individually to correct and unsafe issue. If more regulation is needed, bring it on in the same manner which it has been brought on before.

Typically all the regs that come out are due to accidents/incidents. So we shall see
