In undertaking emergency medical or rescue work the helicopter and its crew may operate under difficult conditions but safety must underpin all missions.

When operated safely, helicopters provide an efficient and versatile work platform but it is important to remember that they have their limitations.

The pilot knows the limitations and safe workings of the aircraft better than anyone and they must always have the final word regarding safety.

There have been many avoidable fatalities around the world due to poor understanding of the potential dangers of operating in the vicinity of helicopters.
