You might have read in Super Yacht news or on Yacht Forums about the recent accident on Attessa IV when their embarked helicopter was blown onto its side during a storm.

Although this will undoubtedly be an expensive mistake, at least I was happy to read that there were no personal injuries. In that respect this incident could have been a lot worse.

I have advised on the safety infrastructure and crew training for embarked helicopters on numerous superyachts. This incident serves as a reminder that we must always be vigilant.

Out of interest, there’s a video below of a Eurocopter landing on Attessa IV during happier times.
