Six days have been set aside for a fatal accident inquiry into the death of motorbike star Steve Hislop more than four years ago.
The inquiry into Steve Hislop's death will take place in December
The case will be heard at Jedburgh Sheriff Court, starting on 11 December.
The former British Superbike Champion was flying alone from the Borders to Buckinghamshire when his helicopter hit hills south of Hawick on 30 July, 2003.
A preliminary hearing in Jedburgh on Friday agreed the timescale for the full inquiry later this year.
Relatives and friends have campaigned for an inquiry into the 41-year-old's death for some time.
An Air Accident Investigation Branch report into the tragedy in 2005 said the accident was caused by the rotors striking the helicopter's boom.
However, it added that an aircraft malfunction "could not be eliminated".
Mr Hislop's mother Margaret said she was "very pleased" the inquiry.
