Default looking far a really great article


I am looking for a helo magazine article, someones opinion on the last
page. It compared helo to fixedwing ops and had some very good thoughts.
One of them was that airlines make everything adapt to them to increase
safety. They operate in an almost completely known environment like
runway conditions etc. Helicopters only survive in a market niche where
all of that is missing (hell, sometimes I wish I'd know where I will be
landing even after having taken off) and therefore approaches to safety
from the airline industry can not be applied 1:1 in the helicopter

I have no idea what magazine it was, maybe American, maybe Canadian.
From 2008 or the end of 2007. I wanted to copy it next time I visited
that base, but somebody had thrown out all the magazines under the table
Damn - somebody actually cleaned up!

Anyway I hope there are still some guys reading here!
