Fatal Logging Helicopter Crash in Oregon

On September 16, 2013, near Idanha, Oregon, the pilot of a Bell UH-1B “Huey” died in a crash while conducting logging helicopter operations.  Early indications suggest the pilot dropped (or “pickled”) the Huey’s external load prior to the crash.  The links embedded below provide preliminary news coverage of this flight-related tragedy and we at Pilot Law, P.C. are actively investigating this unfortunate incident. We are keenly sympathetic to the families’ losses in tragedies such as this, having litigated dozens like it in courts throughout the country and abroad.  In cases such as this, a surviving family may have legal recourse against various entities, including the aircraft and/or component manufacturers and the owner/operator of the aircraft. We at Pilot Law, P.C. bring years’ of experience and expertise to bear and will diligently and relentlessly pursue the truth on behalf of the victims’ families.
