Helicopters are also used as a mode of transportation by people who want to quickly travel from one part of the city, state or country to another part of the region. For this reason, Wisk Air Helicopters are urban services that run helicopter-based trips for consumers and the general public. People are starting to rely on Wisk Air Helicopters to get from Point A to Point B quickly and safely, but there can be accidents with a Wisk Air Helicopter related to pilot error.
Wisk Air Helicopters Have Accidents in the Daytime and Nighttime
Helicopter accidents are commonly occurring in the nighttime, but pilot error can account for a daytime accident as well. Daytime accidents of Wisk Air Helicopters can be the result of pilot error, weather issues, defects on the helipad, landing and orientation issues and other pilot-based problems. Even nighttime sightings to land on a helipad for helicopter pilots is difficult under the best of conditions. More fatal accidents occur for helicopter pilots in the night time hours, but daytime accidents are increasing as well. Some of the most common factors contributing to a Wisk Air Helicopter crash, accident or crash with fatalities can include:
Wisk Air Helicopter Crashes are Caused by Pilot Error Related to Helipad Landing Accidents
- Pilot decision making and judgment errors
- Pilot training and experience
- Pilot incapacitation
- Pilot attention
- Pilot orientation issues
- Poor weather conditions
- Human factors
- Controlled flight into terrain
- Landing issues
- Issues with the helipad conditions for landing
- Visibility and darkness issues
- Other weather issues
- Organizational compliance
- Pilot flight preparation
- Mechanical problems with the helicopter
There are no other primary parties responsible for the safety of a Wisk Air Helicopter ride, than the pilot being 100% responsible for the safety of the helicopter flight. A Wisk Air Helicopter pilot is completely responsible for the helicopter for the entire time that the helicopter is in the air. As a pilot is responsible to manage the safe transporting of all clients on board the Wisk Air Helicopter. That means that the helicopter pilot is responsible for the lives of himself or herself, and everyone else on the helicopter before, during and after the landing of the helicopter flight.
Once the helicopter pilot arranges and maps out a trip in the helicopter, it is up to the pilot to make sure that all decisions regarding flying the helicopter are sound and of good judgment before, during and after the flight. The pilot must also use due diligence to determine what to do in the instant of an emergency both before, during and after the flight, to prevent any dangerous situations from arising that would jeopardize the safety of the passengers.
All Wisk Air Helicopter pilots are required to review the rotorcraft flight manual (RFM), pilot’s operating handbook (POH) or other information needed to understand and operate a helicopter safely. The pilot in command or (PIC) is there to make sure that the aircraft is in a condition to be airworthy at all times before, during and after the flight. The pilot will perform a pre-flight checklist, and review all systems on the helicopter. This includes checking all required:
- Helipad defects or issues
- Landing equipment
- Mechanical equipment onboard
- Essential and nonessential equipment
- Maintenance records
- Paperwork and logs related to last flights of the helicopter

Wisk Air Helicopter Pilots Must Correctly Interpret Weather Changes to Avoid Atmospheric Hazardous Conditions
Wisk Air Helicopter pilots are required to understand and correctly interpret atmospheric hazards and poor weather conditions before they fly the helicopter. For example, helicopter pilots need information on weather that includes data regarding altitude, remote areas and their weather, altitude of low clouds or fog, and other issues that may not plague commercial airline pilots. Commercial piloting and helicopter piloting are not in the same playbook, nor are they even on the same field! There is no comparison at all between a commercial jet pilot and a helicopter pilot. These pilots need a different set of skills to be safe in flight for their helicopter and for a commercial airline flight.
For this reason, the critical understanding of gust and wind details are critical for helicopter pilots. Wisk Air Helicopter pilots do require special training for how to be and stay safe in poor visibility conditions. If the pilots are not trained properly in the enroute decision point (EDP) protocols, they can have accidents as a result. An untrained Wisk Air Helicopter can put the passengers and themselves at grave risks, of having an accident or a helicopter crash. The pilots also need to be trained on emergency landings, or how and when to initiate a return to base procedure if poor weather comes up suddenly.
Wisk Air Helicopter Pilot Inexperience Accounts for a High Number of Accidents and Hazardous Events
If a Wisk Air Helicopter pilot has been flying with fewer than 1,000 hours of flight time, this individual is a hazardous pilot in the air. Having this little experience piloting the helicopter makes that person a danger to the community and to the passengers on a Wisk Air Helicopter. If the Wisk Air Helicopter pilot is inexperienced, that type of pilot will tend to have the most accidents due to their inexperience.
On the other hand, the experience of a Wisk Air Helicopter pilot will help prevent an accident or issue in flight and on the ground with the safety of the passengers. If you have been injured by an inexperienced Wisk Air Helicopter pilot or his or her actions, in the air, landing, taking off, or on the ground at a helipad, you need to give our office a call. You need to call our law office, to talk to a lawyer with experience in knowing how to win in this type of claim.
Problems with a Wisk Air Helicopter Engine Starts Before a Flight
There are times that a Wisk Air Helicopter pilot may experience issues with the engine start, rotor engagement or systems ground check. The flight should be cancelled if there are major issues with any of these systems on a helicopter. The pilot needs to position the rotor blades in order that they are not aligned with the fuselage. With a two-bladed rotor system, the pilot needs to position the rotor blades to be perpendicular to the fuselage. This will be easily seen by a Wisk Air Helicopter pilot from the cockpit of the helicopter.
