A 44-year-old pilot was killed earlier this week as a result of a Helicopter Crash he was involved in while working for one of the nation’s largest helicopter fleet operators in the nation. Reports show the company has a history of serious crashes.
A story from the Star-Tribune explained the accident happened on Wednesday, at around 8:15 a.m., in a suburban area of Maplewood, Minnesota. The pilot was treating the area for mosquito larvae when he began experiencing difficulties and crashed into a garage.
The National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration have launched investigations into the cause of the crash.
Records from the NTSB show the company the pilot was flying for, Scott’s Helicopter Services, Inc., has an extensive history of crashes in the past. Data indicates the company has been involved in 17 crashes since 1989. A majority of the accidents were the result of pilot error, such as failing to refuel or flying into power lines.
The sheer number of accidents highlights the need to better protect both pilots and the public from accidents. The FAA has responded by calling for more pilot training before individuals are allowed to fly on their own.
The Aviation Accident Attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy hope changes are made to reduce the number of helicopter crashes that are recorded each year.
