Initial findings from the ongoing investigation into the ditching of G-CHCN on 22 October have revealed similarities with the G-REDW ditching on 10 May. The three main UK offshore helicopter operators, CHC, Bond and Bristow, took an aligned decision to impose a precautionary, temporary self-imposed suspension on all Super Puma aircraft.

Based on new information in the investigation, the helicopter operators have together decided to return specific Super Puma aircraft to flight. The aircraft being returned to service include certain AS332L, L1 and L2 variants.
