Abstract:

The gross pattern of injury--site, frequency and seriousness--in U. S. Army helicopter accidents is shown. Although 95 percent of the major helicopter accidents are survivable, 22 percent of the deaths in all helicopter accidents occur in survivable conditions. The mechanisms of these avoidable deaths are discussed as well as the steps that should be taken to reduce the morbidity and mortality rate. Author
