International Helicopter Safety Symposium (IHSS)

IHST logoThe International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST), founded as a result of AHS International efforts to improve helicopter safety, promotes safety and works to reduce civil helicopter accidents worldwide. IHST 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.
