In 2002, three employees of an air ambulance company were killed in a helicopter crash that officials blamed on pilot inexperience and a faulty rotor. The men had just taken off from an Iowa hospital when the helicopter began to encounter mechanical trouble. The pilot – who was also killed in the crash – was unable to guide the malfunctioning craft to safety. After a lengthy investigation into the causes of the accident, the families of the victims filed suit, eventually resulting in a sizable settlement from several companies involved in the manufacture of the helicopter.
