Rotorcraft for Transport Use - European Requirements 780535

The unique operating capabilities of the helicopter have enabled it to become a positive growth sector of the aviation industry. It must be questioned whether the manufacturers and National Authorities are providing the helicopter operator with the right aircraft and the correct regulatory controls to maximise this growth.
Modern technology rotorcraft could replace the short haul jet airliner on stages up to 500 miles, replacing expensive and complex airports with simple and efficient heliports. Helicopters incorporating new rotor designs could help reduce the environmental noise pollution problems associated with aviation, especially for those areas close to take-off and landing paths.
The technology, the skills, and the market are available - surely they must not be wasted.
