He got his certifications and they wanted to sell him the most expensive machine they could.  There's blood on many hands in this situation, and lessons to be learned. If 9 people need to be transported, you need a near professional, former professional or current professional to fly them, period.

I am not a fan of spectator sports but this man appears to be very popular and for lots of good reasons.  Talking to a buddy last night, it would seem that Kobe has lots of admiring fans up here in Canada.  Sad.

I have been up and down numerous times in small helicopters, especially many decades ago while slashing seismic lines for oil and gas exploration in the Canadian Rocky mountains — both in SE British Columbia and SW Alberta.  Back in those days, large straight lanes were still cleared with chain saws.  These days, the jug lines are run around and in between trees, a major improvement.  Clear cut seismic lines can have negative ecological impacts.  I digress. 

Our camp helicopter pilot had an accident and ended up spending several weeks recovering in hospital.  The stats of helicopters are not pretty — it is the most dangerous form of modern transportation.  I believe helicopter use is even more dangerous in mountain ranges due to shifting winds. 

It is indeed spectacular to fly around the Rockies in a helicopter but frankly if I never get in one again I will be very, very happy.

Every helicopter pilot I've met has been cautious to a fault, and it sounds like this company is no exception. And yet they were flying VFR in fog, when other helicopters were grounded. The pressure to not "be the bad guy" and tell Kobe you can't fly must be immense.

David Olney
.
Olney died of an apparent heart attack during a performance onstage at the 30A Songwriter Festival in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, on January 18, 2020, at age 71. He was in the middle of his third song "when he stopped, apologized and shut his eyes," Amy Rigby said of Olney. "David was playing a song when he paused, said 'I'm sorry' and put his chin to his chest. He never dropped his guitar or fell off his stool. It was as easy and gentle as he was," fellow singer Scott Miller said.
.
Olney was a revered figure in the folk-rock and Americana communities who had recorded 20 albums of his own as well as having his songs covered by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury and his former roommate Steve Earle.
