Why don't helicopters have parachutes fitted? I mean a parachute for the entire vehicle. I have seen them for Cessna-type aircraft but helicopters are even more dangerous than light aircraft, (which also seem to crash with tragic regularity). It looks like a good opportunity for an inventor to come up with something to reduce these tragedies.

There is something strange with Toho Air being in all these these accidents.

Not at all. Toho is a massive, massive heli services company. Helicopters are comparatively risky aircraft. Crashes are going to happen. Toho's accident history is unremarkable, considering the huge scale of their operations.

Many who labor to keep us safer fall victim to one type of accident or another. This is tragic.
