Super Puma flight ban stays in UK and Norway

A ban on all flights of Airbus Helicopters’ Super Puma EC225LP and AS332L2 remains in place in Norway and UK despite a lift of the temporary suspension by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). 

To remind, the EASA informed on Friday it waslifting the temporary ban on the Super Puma EC225 LP and AS332 L2 helicopters that had been put in place after a fatal accident of an EC225 LP helicopter in Norway on April 29, 2016. The CHC-operated Super Puma crashed near Bergen while returning to land from a Statoil offshore platform.

Despite EASA’s decision to allow the return to service of Airbus Helicopters’ Super Puma EC225LP and AS332L2, the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Friday confirmed that its existing restriction, prohibiting all commercial flying of this type by UK operators, is to remain in place.
