Don't push it, LAND IT

Making an early decision to land your helicopter during the onset of an abnormal situation will reduce the likelihood of an accident.

In an effort to encourage precautionary landings, the ATSB is encouraging helicopter pilots to ‘don’t push it, land it’ if they encounter an abnormal situation while in flight.

Jointly developed and supported by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and the Australian Helicopter Industry Association (AHIA), ‘Don’t push it, land it’ is safety messaging that encourages all helicopter pilots, no matter their experience or the type of helicopter they fly, to make a precautionary landing if they experience a situation that just isn’t right.
