On the contrary, their Heli pilots are among the most skilled and versatile I've worked alongside.Guess it's not only SANPARKS that suffers from incompetent pilots.
Their work is obviously time-sensitive. When I was also working from Virginia (a training airfield) being able to position helicopters for a quick takeoff at short notice required exceptional dynamism and fine control over the aircraft, as well as good coordination with the control tower to dash in and out between the busy pattern of training aircraft.
I hold them in such high esteem that I would personally rule out pilot error even before the investigation.
