    Data from the EHSAT analysis confirm that a continuing significant number of helicopter accidents is due to crew judgement and actions. EHEST has developed a set of educational material with the aim of improving the safety of helicopter operations. The leaflets and videos provide the pilots with the relevant information for a variety of topics in order to allow a basic understanding of the causes, the prevention and the recovery actions thereby enabling pilots to make better, more informed decisions. The educational material will be presented.

It will include briefs on safety bulletins, fact sheets, toolkits (including the SMS toolkit), presentations and videos aimed at enhancing safety for pilots, instructors, mechanics, and the helicopter community in general.
