With so much buzz circling around Atlanta regarding the death of former NBA player, Kobe Bryant, his young daughter, and a handful of their friends, you may be wondering how safe it is to fly in a helicopter.
Helicopters are very useful aircraft in the sense that they can fly forwards, backward, hover over an area, descend and ascend vertically, as well as land and take off without a runway.
All of these capabilities make helicopters intricate and complex machines that require the highest level of design, construction, and maintenance, as well as a skillful operator. If any of these components fail, a helicopter crash can occur, causing permanent damage, or, as in the case of Kobe Bryant, death.
