"Doors off" flights banned in wake of deadly helicopter crash

The recent helicopter tragedy over New York's East River raised a multitude of questions about helicopter and flight safety, and the Federal Aviation Administration has enacted a new ban on "doors off" helicopter flights in its aftermath. At Kreindler & Kreindler LLP, we understand the risks raised by these and other dangerous and defective aircraft components, and we have helped many victims and family members of helicopter and plane crash victims seek appropriate recourse following accidents.

Eurocopter AS350 involved in deadly East River crash

Most New York residents are familiar with helicopters, but few recognize the potential dangers involved. Fortunately, there are sections of aviation accident law that provide a way of dealing with the unexpected and often disastrous results of a failed helicopter tour. 

Drones are popular, but are they safe?

In 2017, the Consumers Union wrote an open letter online to address the House Transportation Committee's aviation panel. The CU voiced concern over the increasing use of drones and the potential for injuries because of design defects. Whether you live in New York or in other parts of the U.S., you have likely noticed the growing popularity of drones among aviation fans. 

How safe are helicopter tours?

If you are planning a dream vacation to New York City, the Grand Canyon, Hawaii or any of the other stunning destinations the USA has to offer, then helicopter tours might be a good choice for you. Helicopters are safer than you might expect, and they offer a unique set of opportunities for exploration. However, this mode of travel is not without risk, especially if you are visiting from abroad.
