Following the accident suffered in Greenland in August, the Royal Danish Air Force have signed the Lynx helicopter off to fly again.  The investigation into the accident example found a tail rotor drive shaft failure, as announced by Colonel Karsten Schultz, chairman of the Defence Air Accident Investigation Commission.  Each aircraft in the fleet will undergo thorough checks at more regular intervals than before.

A separate inspection program, including working closely with manufacturer AgustaWestland, will work on a longer term solution to get the inspection interval back to where it was.
