HAI executive and senior staff met for two days late last week with 55 representatives of the air tour industry in San Diego.
The first day brought together members of HAI’s helicopter tour operators’ committee. Day Two was a meeting of the Tour Operators Program of Safety.
The agenda for both groups was similar, and covered a wide array of topics particular to the air tour industry, including discussions of: current industry safety and safety management issues; best practices and standardized practices; policies and regulations governing air tours; government, legislative, and budget issues facing the industry; regional updates from air tour companies around the country; and market and technology updates.
Each group is scheduled to meet again during HAI HELI-EXPO 2016 in Louisville, Ky., Feb. 29-March 3.
