After 2 crashes, NCAA suspends operations of Bristow Helicopter S76 series


The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has suspended the operation of the Bristow Helicopters Limited’s Sikorsky S-76X++ type till further notice. Yesterday, the Helicopter ditched inside the high sea, with 11 passengers including two crew members on board.

It’s the same type of Helicopter also operated by the company that was involved in a crash on August 12, 2015, killing 6 of the 12 people on board. Due to the frequency of the crash involving the aircraft type, the NCAA decided to wield the big stick and suspended the operation of the series to enable it carry out a full scale audit on its operations with particular emphasis on its Sikorsky S- 76C++ type.
