What do you mean by safe ? Those least likely to crash or those that if they do you are most likely to survive ?

206 is reputed o be the least likely to kill you if you divide hours by deaths. If you do crash then a 500 is the most crash survivable machine. 844 got shot down in vietnam, no pilot died from crashing !
Just come back from seeing the cabri G2 what a machine, seat is good for plus 35 g up and down an 19g laterally !
Remember all facts and figures can be manupilated. Eg 206 and 500 have been to war, R44 hasnt so that will skew the figures badly in favour of the R44

The safest chopper is in the hangar with the keys in the office.

I guess the safest is the swisscopter, Iíve heard many say that it has not much room but has lots of protection we need.
