Starspeed Director to Speak at Heli UK Expo

Starspeed Director, Dr. Simon Mitchell, will be speaking at the Heli UK Expo at Sywell Aerodrome on Friday, May 29th at 2pm.

Representing the British Helicopter Association and the European Helicopter Safety Team, Dr. Mitchell will be talking about “The Value to the Helicopter Industry of Cooperation, Sharing Information and Communication”.

Dr. Mitchell is the current holder of the Eric Brown Award; presented annually by the B.H.A to the individual considered to have made the greatest and most significant contribution to the British Helicopter Industry during the past year. He is also a Visiting Fellow at Cranfield University’s Safety and Accident Investigation Centre.

This talk follows a recent Industry Safety Day, organised by Dr. Mitchell on behalf of the Corporate Aviation Safety Executive. The day was hosted by the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch and supported by the CAA and was an opportunity for the industry to focus on present systems and how measures could be taken to improve the safety of flying helicopters. More than 40 senior pilots and management personnel from the various sectors of the UK onshore helicopter industry attended.
