Robinson Helicopter Co. President To Help Guide The International Helicopter Safety Team

Helicopter safety organization The International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST) has added Robinson Helicopter Company President Kurt Robinson to its Executive Committee.

Kurt Robinson heads the Robinson Helicopter Company. The firm, which employs nearly 1,300 people, has its headquarters and factory in Southern California, plus a network of more than 400 service centers that provide world-wide service and support. Kurt Robinson has been with the company for more than 25 years and has been president since 2010. He is a commercial-rated helicopter pilot and he holds an MBA and a law degree from the University of San Diego.

The International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST) was formed to lead a government and industry cooperative effort to address factors that were affecting an unacceptable helicopter accident rate. The group’s mission is to reduce the international civil helicopter accident rate by 80 percent. The effort is co-chaired by the FAA and Helicopter Association International (HAI). Other major industry participants include AgustaWestland, the American Helicopter Society International, Bell Helicopter, The Boeing Co., Bristow Group, CHC Helicopter, Eurocopter, the Flight Safety Foundation, the Helicopter Association of Canada, Robinson Helicopter, Shell Aircraft, and Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation.

IHST members also establish international partnerships in countries with significant helicopter operations and work to encourage the overseas industries to carry out accident analysis and develop safety interventions. Worldwide partners now supporting the work of the IHST include government and industry participants from the United States, Canada, Brazil, Japan, Australia, India, Russia, and multiple countries in Europe and in the Middle East/North Africa region.
