Safety directive for EC225LP/AS332L2 helicopters

A new safety and operational directive covering EC225LP and AS332L2 helicopters has been issued to prohibit all flying by these helicopters (including search and rescue) until further information is available. This follows the publication of a preliminary report from Accident Investigation Board Norway (AIBN) issued on the 1 June 2016 into the fatal accident in Norway with an EC225LP on the 29 April 2016 and replaces SD 2016/002.
