Details


Barry Lloyd

Lloyd began his helicopter career in the U.S. Army Warrant Officer Flight program. He served two tours of duty in Vietnam and was severely wounded when his helicopter was shot down during a reconnaissance mission. Lloyd was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Star, several purple hearts, and the Air Medal, with thirty oak leaf clusters for his bravery and many missions flown in combat. Upon his return to the states, Lloyd was promoted to Captain in the Army.

Lloyd spent several months enduring a number of surgeries after his helicopter accident in Vietnam. During his recuperation, he returned to St. Mary’s College in Moraga, California and then graduated from the University of Southern California Aircraft Accident Investigation Course Series. He later earned his Juris Doctor from Lincoln Law School. Eventually Lloyd returned to his passion, flying. He began his commercial helicopter career in the forest and mountains of California. His many years of work in this area earned him the U.S. Forest Service certification for fire, rappel, mountain, snow ops, animal herding, bucket ops, long line ops, and heli-torch certification.

Lloyd’s outstanding achievements and his efforts earned him his ratings of CFI, CFII, and the ATP rating in both helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft. He also earned his A&P maintenance rating while acquiring his pilot ratings. His dedication to improving safety brought deserved recognition. The FAA awarded Lloyd with the title Aviation Safety Counselor and made him a designated flight examiner. His work as accident investigator, teaching at seminars and attending other pilot education events throughout the U.S., keep him busy.

Lloyd’s teaching skills and knowledge of FARs and aviation law are valuable assets. His student pilots do "Fly Safer," because of Lloyd. Those who have taken HAI’s Flight Instructor Refresher Course are witness to Lloyd’s skills and very special dedication to the helicopter industry.

Barry Lloyd now works as the Helicopter Program Manager for Cal Fire. His duties include operating as Chief Pilot, carding contract and Cal Fire pilots, and insuring all safety standards are met.
