The FAA has banned open door flying after the Liberty helicopter accident in NYC.
Some one ask me my thoughts about this.
This is what I say. Open door flying is fun and safe if you do it safely. The safety equipment the passengers were using were not ment for this type of operation. Their equipment failed. I do not agree with the feds for doing this I think banning 5 point harnesses from flying with no quick release would of been smar.
