​Helicopter pilots told to 'land it'

24 May 2018

In an effort to encourage precautionary landings, aviation focussed organisations are encouraging helicopter pilots to 'don't push it, land it' if they encounter an abnormal situation while in flight.

Jointly developed and supported by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and the Australian Helicopter Industry Association (AHIA), 'Don't push it, land it' is safety messaging to encourage all helicopter pilots, no matter their experience or the type of helicopter they fly, to make a precautionary landing if they experience a situation that just isn't right.

ATSB Chief Commissioner, Mr Greg Hood, said making an early decision to land during the onset of an abnormal situation will reduce the likelihood of an accident from happening.
