EASA Rotorcraft Safety Roadmap
The team formed by EASA and industry representatives including EHA analysed a significant amount of data and took a very close look at the European ‘helicopter landscape’ before establishing its goals, objectives and actions.
The Roadmap’s main objective is to significantly improve the safety of European rotorcraft, with a more specific target of a 50% safety improvement over the next 10 years. Another important goal is to strengthen industry, mainly the small operators, in a sustainable way. Along these main goals, many sub-goals will of course have to be achieved within a much shorter timeframe. These will lead to a significant safety improvement and strengthening of industry. Examples include installation of autopilots in small helicopters, a better safety culture, incentives for new technologies and more.
