FAA to Propose New Medical Helicopter Safety Rules

The New York Times reports, “A Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) official said Wednesday that the agency planned to propose new rules requiring medical helicopters to use additional safety equipment, including collision avoidance systems.” The decision comes after “a series of fatal medical helicopter crashes over the last two years that have killed 35 people.” In the past, the agency “took the position that helicopter operators could make safety changes more quickly if they acted voluntarily.” But, speaking “at a Congressional hearing Wednesday,” FAA director of flight standards John Allen said, the agency “would soon begin a rulemaking proceeding to mandate the use of certain safety equipment and procedures.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
