Fatal EMS helicopter crash in N. WI joins tragic data base

News of three fatalities in the crash near Hazelhurst of a Madison-based helicopter on a medical mission is a reminder that these flights often take place in stressful circumstances and environments, as this NTSB data base indicates.

The safety of these flights has been a source of much study.

A 2016 review found that the operations are getting safer, but problems remain, especially on night flights.

The helicopter believed to have been involved would be similar to this model. All very sad.
