Benefits of the HelicopterSBT team for Airplane & Helicopter Aviation Operators

How can the HelicopterSBT team be of value to your airplane or helicopter aviation operation?

Our company has been setting the safety bar higher for airplane & helicopter flight schools & general aviation operators since 2010. This translates to smoother, safer operations, trains better pilots and reduces costs and stress for aircraft operators.

With a modern FAA Industry Training Standards (FITS) methodology we can improve training results and/or make Safety Management System (SMS) programs easy to implement, inexpensive and seamless in building a "Just Safety Culture".  The mystery of implementation is removed through education from a US Helicopter Safety Team Training & SMS committee member. If you have a SMS that is confusing or not working now, we can develop a simple working model with an easy growth path to success. Most of the time this can be accomplished for less cost than the operator is expecting.

We can assist you as we have others. Don’t be left behind in today's rapidly changing world.  We can bring your training programs or operations up to date in just a few days and provide professional monitoring and input as desired.  

Why the HelicopterSBT Team?  

Our aim is true, we care about your daily position in the industry and will do our very best for you and your company. Operational cost reduction through the  demonstration of industry best practices for risk management and accident avoidance is our goal.

We have worked with many schools over the past four years helping them to rise above the rest.  Our consultants are industry leaders with years of experience and are connected to many more.

Will it be a burden to operations?

No, as we are sensitive to the anxiety of growth or change. We realize that evaluation and growth of an operational culture and procedures can be difficult to address but the optimum results can easily be attained.

Is it expensive?

No, in fact, we will show you ways to get your money back in safety, ease of operations, reputation and more.  Most of our customers say it is a no brainer to work with us and have reaped the benefits many times over and continue to do so on a daily basis.
