Bristow Group Will Be Platinum Sponsor of IHST Int’l Safety Symposium
September 20, 2013
Goal is to reduce civil helicopter accidents worldwide through education, self discipline and personal responsibility
Bristow Group will be the Platinum Sponsor for The International Helicopter Safety Team’s (IHST) Seventh International Helicopter Safety Symposium. This event for safety professionals will take place Feb. 27-28, 2014, in Anaheim, Calif., immediately following the close of Heli-Expo 2014.
The IHST, which promotes safety and works to reduce civil helicopter accidents worldwide, was formed in 2005 to lead a government and industry cooperative effort to address factors that were affecting an unacceptable helicopter accident rate. The group’s vision is an international civil helicopter community with zero accidents with a goal to reduce the international civil helicopter accident rate by 80 percent by 2016.
The Seventh International Helicopter Safety Symposium (IHSS 2014) will review the international helicopter community’s progress toward this goal and encourage an industry discussion about pilot self-discipline and personal responsibility. In addition, keynote speakers at the event will be U.S. National Transportation Safety Board member Robert L. Sumwalt and Robinson Helicopter Company CEO Kurt Robinson.
