Safety Promotion

Issue 2.2

EHEST has developed this comprehensive and fully illustrated Helicopter Flight Instructor guide based on a manual developed by the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and other international organisations. CASA kindly made the contents of the publication available to EHEST for dissemination without restriction. In issue 1, EHEST incorporated changes to reflect European terminology and syllabus content and also enriched the manual.

Promoting a safe and extensive career in Aviation

Aviation is a complex environment covering a variety of activities. The human component is one of the most important elements in this system, thus having fit aeronautical personnel is essential in order to ensure aviation safety. This creates the need for Aeromedical Examiners (AMEs) to be aware of the different operational environment and the corresponding risk factors.
 

The purpose of this document is to share recommended practices and information on Crew Resource Management (CRM) and promote the development of CRM training for both Air Operators having CRM training responsibilities, and Competent Authorities having oversight responsibilities.

The EASA Safety Risk Management process has identified CRM as one of the most important safety factor in the domain of Commercial Air Transport (CAT) Aeroplane operations.

This leaflet aims to reinforce to pilots the need to understand aviation weather, including the appropriate threat assessments and strategies to adopt in relation to pre-flight, in-flight and post-flight operations for a helicopter flight to be conducted under Visual Meteorology Conditions (VMC).

This leaflet discusses the factors affecting helicopter performance. It then provides pilots with guidance, tips and techniques to ensure safe operations.

Most of performance-related accidents can be avoided if the pilot is conscious of the performance limitations of the operated rotorcraft.

Pilots should keep in mind that performance calculations must be part of each and every flight preparation briefing.

Miscellaneous Papers & Reports

The report aims at providing an overview of how the EPAS actions owned by the States are being implemented.

It highlights areas where possible difficulties lay and brings up issues (in an aggregated way) and good practices which could serve as examples for other States.

This report’s compilation is voluntary on the part of EASA. It responds to an effort to monitor EPAS implementation by collecting all relevant information provided by States in one document, useful for the stakeholders and enticing for the general reader alike.

The Practical Guide on ‘Assigning pilots to oversight tasks’ is made available on EASA website. This document is the outcome of the Working Group established following the ‘Proposal for a Competency Framework for the Competent Authorities' presented by EASA to the Management Board meeting 2016-02.

European Plan for Aviation Safety

The EPAS, a key component of the European Aviation Safety Programme, provides a coherent and transparent framework for safety work at European level, helping the identification of major safety risks and defining the actions to take. It also supports the Member States of the European Union to implement their State Safety Programmes and facilitates the sharing of best practice and knowledge.
