While helicopters may be a viable commuter option in some parts of the United States, the vast majority of helicopters are used by businesses to move people and equipment in and out of areas inaccessible to other conventional modes of transportation. The operation of a helicopter is quite complex, and can be very susceptible to adverse weather conditions. Most helicopter accidents result from negligent maintenance, faulty manufacturing and/or pilot error. In addition to injuries resulting from a crash, many serious and fatal injuries occur during loading and unloading procedures. It is the responsibility of the pilot and crew make sure passengers are safely boarded.
