The U.S. Helicopter Team (USHST) has announced the location and preliminary details of its annual meeting for 2018.  The meeting will be held at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) in Prescott, Arizona on 07 – 08 August 2018. ERAU – Prescott offers a degree program for the Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Science (Rotary Wing).  This degree combines flight training with academic preparation in the technical and managerial aspects of aviation — the skills and knowledge demanded by today's aviation industry. 

During the two day meeting, Industry and Government helicopter experts will discuss the current state of the industry and discuss further ways to enhance helicopter safety.  The team will present the current status of the Helicopter – Safety Enhancements (H-SEs) and Outreach initiatives which are the vital components to reducing the U.S. Fatal Accident Rate.  The H-SEs are divided into four main categories:  Outreach, Policy, Technology & Equipment and Training.  Our Outreach initiative is focused on four industries: Personal/Private, Helicopter Air Ambulance, Commercial and Aerial Application.  Excellent safety briefings and presentations by industry and government experts will be the key to a successful meeting!
