Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan – Despite increased operation requirements, the Army’s Class A aviation accidents – which are the most costly accidents in terms of money or people – have decreased dramatically this fiscal year.

“We’ve had only one Class A since we deployed six months ago,” said Chief Warrant Officer 5 Timothy Burke, the safety officer for Task Force Thunder, 159th Combat Aviation Brigade. “That is down from previous deployments. We had no Class A through C aviation accidents at all from November 2009 to February 2011.”

The numbers are down for Class A accidents, and that’s remarkable, he said, because Afghanistan’s environment is more stressful on the aircraft – given the types of missions Task Force Thunder flies, the terrain and the temperature.

Chief Warrant Officer 4 Joel Sizelove, the production control officer in charge for Task Force Lift, checks the readouts from the integrated vehicle health management system on a UH-60M Black Hawk to determine, among other things, track vibrations in the rotors. IVHMS ultimately saves maintainers hours or even days of work and gets the aircraft and its crew back into the fight faster.
