Stand-Down Locations

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak HSA has cancelled its program of regional helicopter safety seminars until further notice. We still believe that there is a need to bring you current safety information, and as soon as we can find a way to do that safely, we will continue.

Until we can meet again, we wish you all the best and hope that everything goes well for you, your family, and your business.

The gang at HSA


Check out this list of HSA Safety Stand-Down locations around the United States, where we welcome the entire aviation safety team to a free day of helicopter-specific safety education. Each Stand-Down features programming targeted at the different roles that pilots, maintenance technicians, and managers play in ensuring a safe workplace — the only kind worth working in.

You can register to attend an HSA Safety Stand-Down — there is no registration fee — by clicking on a link below, or visit our Events page. WINGS and AMT credits are available, and coffee, danish, lunch, and snacks are provided.

We would like to thank our partners, sponsors, and exhibitors for helping us reach the community of those who work in small helicopter operations. And a big thanks goes to the folks in the local helicopter community who come out in each location to support us.

Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to:

  • Suggest a future Stand-Down location
  • Ask about exhibit or sponsorship opportunities
  • Join the Helicopter Safety Alliance — where we help small helicopter operators achieve big-time safety — and receive our free e-newsletter
  • Tell us how we can improve our shows  — or even throw a compliment our way!
