Embattled offshore operator CHC, in the midst of reducing their fleet by 90 helicopters over 60 days, is taking steps to ensure current contract commitments can be met following the grounding of EC225 and AS332L2 helicopters. In common with other operators on the North Sea, CHC have brought in two Sikorsky S92s from Canada to provide extra cover. Bristow have brought in S92s from Nigeria and Brazil, for example.
Flying under their Canadian registrations C-FBXY and C-FEAE, the pair arrived at Aberdeen yesterday evening after a long ferry flight via Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands.
The aircraft will be re-registered with the UK CAA as G-WNST and G-WNSU respectively in the coming days.
