Bell 525 Crash Safety Recommendation Report


An accident involving an Amarillo built 525 helicopter leads to some safety recommendations from the National Transportation Safety Board.

Those recommendations include guidance on recording devices, like cockpit audio and image recorders used during experimental test flights.

They also recommend providing information about the July 2016 crash of a 525 helicopter in east Texas that killed two crewmen.

During the test flight, the helicopter began vibrating and the main rotor hit the tail causing the helicopter to break up in flight.
