According to various researches, one of main causes of flight accidents is influence of human factors. It is important to collect and analyze event data in advance to minimize and prevent human errors by developing safety checklist. As a result international aviation industry developed Flight Operations Quality Assurance for commercial airliners, and, upon its proven effectiveness, it is now highly recommended to adopt for helicopter operations. Consequently, S government organization instituted Helicopter Flight Operations Quality Assurance system in 2012. Hence, this study conducted regression analysis of S organization's flight event frequency and applied ICAO SMS Matrix to categorize the severity of the events according to international standards. Based on the analysis, this research derived fundamental checklist factors for helicopter, which can be a proactive measure for safe operation.
