Systematization of approaches to complex solution for helicopter flight safety increase

The article sets a topical theme: the search of ways and methods for solving the operating problem, which is very important for any aircraft (including rotorcrafts). It is the increase of flight safety. It is noted that the solution of this task demands the organization of multiple system analysis of accidents and comprehensive approach to minimization of risk factors. The article shapes the concept and proposes the structural and functional diagram of helicopter ‘on-board flight safety system’ as the subsystem of the on-board avionics complex or stand-alone helicopter system.
