Final rule decision making will be made on two proposals that were submitted in October 2010.
The rules come after much study and insight into HEMS accident reports between 1988 and 2009. The proposals are to increase safety and decrease risk in specific flight situations (CFIT, LOC, IIMC, and Night).
The rules will be set sometime mid year, slated for July. Read more about the proposals and how they could affect your flight ops.
