Helicopter helpline

Observing the dismal regularity with which rotary-wing craft crash, usually resulting in the death of some if not all the occupants, we suggest the setting-up of a free telephone counseling service, by which potential passengers can be talked out of their self-destructive impulses by trained volunteers.

This will reduce the numbers of bereaved relatives, who no doubt ask the question "Why them ?", the simple answer sadly being "Because they were stupid enough to fly in a helicopter."

Governments seem largely opposed to doctor-assisted suicide, yet continue to permit pilot-assisted suicide. There seems to be something wrong there.

Is there similar data for helicopters ? [popbottle, Mar 29 2017]

       Would it help to only fly in helicopters piloted by doctors ?

       ^ Damn there's an echo in place...maybe we should put some carpet down or acoustic tiles?

       Would it help to only fly in helicopters with carpeting and acoustic tile?

       No. Nothing helps.   

       The only thing that works is "not going in the helicopter".
