Types of Helicopter Accidents
Helicopters are considered more dangerous, crashing at a much higher percentage than airplanes. Nonetheless, helicopter accidents are very similar to plane crashes, occurring in many of the same situations with similar causes. Some of the common contexts for helicopter accidents include:
- Air ambulance/Medevac crashes
- Small private airline accidents
- Commercial domestic accidents
- Commercial international accidents
Just like with airline accidence, helicopter accidents generally have the same causes, like pilot, maintenance and air traffic control errors.
