Pre-flight risk assessment in emergency medical service (EMS) helicopters
Author and Affiliation:
Shively, Robert J.(NASA Ames Research Center, U.S. Army, Aeroflightdynamics Directorate, Moffett Field)
Abstract: A preflight risk assessment system (SAFE) was developed at NASA-Ames Research Center for civil EMS operations to assist pilots in making a decision objectively to accept or decline a mission. The ability of the SAFE system to predict risk profiles was examined at an EMS operator. Results of this field study showed that the usefulness of SAFE was largely dependent on the type of mission flown.
