Reuters is reporting that the Republic of Singapore has put a pause on making a decision for a helicopter fleet purchase of around $1 Billion after the CHC EC225 accident in Norway on 29th April.

The Airbus H225M is short-listed along with the AgustaWestland AW101 in a Navy order to replace the 32 Super Pumas, made up of 19 AS332M and 13 AS532UL models.  Local reports say the H225M was the front runner over the AW101, but the accident in Norway has no doubt raised some questions which anyone spending that sort of money would like answered before making a commitment.
