OHSLG: S92 Helicopters to Return to Action Following Grounding
The Offshore Helicopter Safety Leadership Group (OHSLG) expects the phased return of Sikorsky S92 helicopters on Wednesday.

The Offshore Helicopter Safety Leadership Group (OHSLG) expects the phased return of Sikorsky S92 helicopters on Wednesday.

“The operators will have completed the checks on all the aircraft by midday,” an OHSLG spokesperson said in a statement.

“It is expected that…there will be a phased return of aircraft following full return to service testing. Clearly the priority is to ensure that both passengers and crew are safe and it is important to maintain a precautionary stance in what is an ongoing investigation,” the spokesperson added.

The news follows the grounding of all S92 aircraft after an incident involving the helicopter type took place on a North Sea platform at the end of last year.

OHSLG is made up of helicopter operators, unions, Oil & Gas UK, Step Change in Safety and the Civil Aviation Authority.
