The Transportation Safety Board released its final investigation report into the crash of a helicopter on Lesser Slave Lake in which the pilot, who was the sole occupant, died from head injuries. The report noted that “the lack of regulations or policies requiring helicopter pilots to wear helmets places them at greater risk of incapacitation due to head injuries following a ditching or crash.”
