Safety is also a priority for airborne law enforcement, and this message was always being transmitted loud and clear. Matt Zuccaro, the president of Helicopter Association International was present at the conference, and participated in a panel discussion on aircraft safety. It is nice to see the airborne law enforcement community and the leading helicopter trade association joining as partners in the quest for no accidents. Their goal of reducing helicopter accidents 80% by the year 2016 is bold. The industry has assembled a prestigious team named the "International Helicopter Safety Team." As outlined in Mr. Zuccaro's presentation, the team is off to a great start in achieving that goal.
ALEA 2007: Mission accomplished!
