Launched on November 2006, the European Helicopter Safety Team (EHEST) brings together manufacturers, operators, research organisations, regulators, accident investigators and a few military operators from across Europe. EHEST is the helicopter branch of the ESSI, and also the European component of the International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST).

- Who are we?
The basic principle is to improve aviation safety by complementing regulatory action by voluntarily encouraging and committing to cost-effective safety enhancements. Analysis of occurrence data, coordination with other safety initiatives and implementation of cost-effective action plans are carried out to achieve specific safety goals. In addition, the EHEST initiative implements actions of the European Safety Plan 2012-2015.
