Airbus CEO, Guillaume Faury, landed at the Helitech Expo in a Super Puma H225 to demonstrate the renewed safety of the helicopter type. The H225s were grounded after a fatal crash in Norway, where 13 people died. Since then, they have been cleared to fly, but operators in the North Sea are reluctant to reintroduce them. Faury explained that new safety measure had been put in place to ensure that another crash will not occur. These include a short time before key components need to be replaced, improvements to spalling detection and shock detectors are now attached to parts that are being transported by roads, reports BBC.
