Further Helicopter Safety Checks After Fatal Norway Crash
Published in Oil Industry News
Further safety checks have been ordered on a fleet of Super Puma helicopters after a fatal crash off Norway last year.
The European Aviation Safety Agency has asked operators of 225 and L2 aircraft to carry out one-off gearbox inspections.
13 people, including Iain Stuart of Lawrencekirk, were killed in the crash last April.
An interim report suggested gearbox failure was the most likely cause – the 225s continue to be grounded in the UK.
