EASA issues an Emergency Airworthiness Directive following the EC225 Super Puma accident in Norway

EASA issued an Emergency Airworthiness Directive (AD) following the tragic accident in Norway that involved an Airbus Helicopters EC 225 Super Puma helicopter on 29 April 2016.


The available information so far indicates that the main rotor has separated from the main gearbox (MGB); an investigation is on going.

The AD requires to perform precautionary inspections before the next flig on the fleet of EC 225 helicopters and asks to report any discrepancies to both EASA and Airbus Helicopters.

Further mandatory action may follow as the investigation progresses.
