56 Seconds to Live: VR Training Improves Helicopter Safety

Are you aware that 56 seconds is the median time before a fatal helicopter accident occurs when pilots lose visual references unexpectedly? This statistic is alarming, and it highlights the importance of proper training to avoid accidents.
