All confidence in the Eurocopter Super Puma helicopter has been lost within the UK oil and gas sector. Accident investigators have questioned the air safety regulator's stance in ruling out technical issues as the cause of the latest tragic accident.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which regulates aviation in the UK, issued a statement on August 30th saying it did not believe that the accident was caused by an "airworthiness or technical problem", based on the information available. But the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB), which is leading the probe into the crash,responded to the statment saying it "can't figure out" why it arrived at that verdict.
Some people are not telling the truth about what is going on here, and they are gambling with the lives of workers. Lets put a stop to this.
We, the undersigned, call on the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to enforce a permanent ban on the use of all models and variants of the Eurocopter Super Puma helicopter for the transportation of oil and gas work personnel to and from offshore work areas.
