    Apparently August is a bad mojo month in Russia, all sorts at accidents and disasters happen in this time of year

    Planes crash... they don't crash at the same time each week, and they don't crash one or two months apart to even out and make a nice average crash statistic.

    If related to weather they can be clumped together, but equally there are so many other factors just picking one is not going to explain them all.

    Just bad luck... wait for the investigations and move on.

    No one goes on about all the car crashes that happen continuously around the world and kill rather more people... you would think having aircraft able to carry hundreds of people at a time and the dangers of weather and geography with the danger of gravity and enormous volumes of fuel in most cases would make it vastly more dangerous... but even today the risks are not that bad for flying.

    It's always the same. People concentrate more on Russian crashes but less so on American crashes let's say. Neither are Rosey pictures and proves that lots needs to be done to improve quality and QA. And even that won't stop crashes from happening.

    What is important is human life. How many of those crashes cause loss of human life?

    Helicopters seem to be a death sentence for anyone in a crash

    Clearly. That's why I think they need such parachutes.

    Planes can fly on one engine or even with no engines for a long time and can even land on unprepared roads or on the sea. Much safer.

    Helicopter aren't safe. And the future UAV taxi that will be used will be worse.

    First helicopter with a parachute my arse.... the Ka-50 has had an ejection seat since it was designed in the 1980s.

    When things go wrong and you crash a parachute can only do so much... a couple of those crashes were heavy landings... well you don't know the landing is going to be too heavy till it is over making a parachute useless.

    Helicopters can auto rotate if they have speed and altitude, but again not much use when coming in to land and there is a problem.

    It does not matter what they do there will always be air accidents... just like there will always be car crashes... minimise them as much as possible, but don't whine on the internet about it... that helps no one.

    Yeah. Especially with all of these drone heli taxis coming out. If they had a chute, I'd take a ride on one. If not ? I'll pass
