EASA have published “Evaluation report on administrative burden for small helicopter operators”, completely missing the irony that the PDF is 121 pages long….. Here is the introductory paragraph
The EASA Rotorcraft Safety Roadmap (RSR)1 was adopted in December 2018 and contains recommendations to significantly reduce the number of helicopter accidents and incidents in Europe. To meet this objective, the current evaluation report identifies and proposes ways of reducing the administrative burden and costs for helicopter operators, so that they can focus on safety-related tasks and improve their performance.
Based on the analysis of data and the feedback from the EASA Stakeholder Advisory Body (SAB) Rotorcraft Committee (R.COM), it was decided to limit the scope of this exercise to the lower end of the helicopter operators’ market, i.e. helicopter operators that operate five or less helicopters.
To achieve this objective, this evaluation report identifies the unnecessary administrative burden and administrative costs for rotorcraft operators.
