The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) announced today it has decided to lift the temporary flight suspension of two Super Puma helicopters.
The Airbus Group told media sources it will not scrap its Super Puma helicopter fleet as a result of the accident that killed 13 people in Norway.
According to a preliminary report on the offshore helicopter crash in Norway last April, it’s highly likely the accident was the result of a fatigue fracture
Norway has extended the ban on commercial Super Puma flights to include the nation’s search and rescue fleet, following the fatal helicopter crash on the 29th April.
The final report on the 2013 Super Puma offshore helicopter crash is due to be published later today by the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch.
