HAI@Work: The Walk That Can Save Your Life
A surprising number of helicopter accidents result from things that could have been identified by the pilot during a final walk around the aircraft after a full preflight inspection. Open cowl doors, left-behind tools, vent and intake covers, pens, rags—all of these and more could lead to trouble.

In fact, the sheer number of accidents caused by the lack of a simple, vigilant walk-around led the US Helicopter Safety Team (USHST) to release a helicopter safety enhancement (H-SE 28) recommending the industry and FAA work together to develop guidelines and recommended practices for helicopter inspections that include a final walk-around.

Join us Sep. 22 at 4:00 pm eastern (UTC-4) for a potentially lifesaving HAI@Work webinar. HAI President and CEO Jim Viola will take us on a thorough walk-around of an aircraft and talk us through exactly what to look for, offering tips to ensure we don’t miss a thing. He’ll also share examples of what has been missed in the past and how it contributed to tragedy. Jim will be joined by Scott Boughton, owner of Palisade Aviation, who will discuss key themes regarding the importance of preflight inspections, walk-arounds, and postflight inspections.

Jim Viola is the president and CEO of HAI. After a successful career as a US Army aviator, he continued public service in the FAA, where he served as director of the Office of General Aviation Safety Assurance before joining HAI.

Scott Boughton is a veteran Part 135 instructor–check pilot and is active in multiple industry working groups. Currently a Part 135 IFR PIC–check pilot, production test pilot, and owner of Palisade Aviation, Scott holds rotorcraft ATP and CFII certificates as well as commercial privileges in single and multiengine airplanes.
