Bristow inspects fleet after last week’s crash

Bristow Helicopters (Nigeria) Limited Friday confirmed that it was conducting an enhanced inspection review of its S-76 fleet in the wake of last week’s helicopter accident that took the lives of six people. 

According to Bristow, the company has resumed flying those aircraft that have been inspected with the full endorsement of the regulatory authorities.

Bristow’s Regional Director Africa, Duncan Moore, said: “We would wish to reiterate our appreciation for the help, support and understanding we have received from the NCAA, the AIB, our clients and other industry stakeholders during this very difficult period.”

Bristow continues to cooperate fully with the AIB on the ongoing investigation and has recovered the aircraft that was involved in an accident in Lagos on August 12, 2015. The aircraft, a Sikorsky S76 C+, was certificated to carry 12 passengers plus two crew members. Bristow operated the aircraft configured for 10 passengers and two crew members.
