  • Committee calls for public inquiry into North Sea helicopter safety

    News | 10 Jul 2014 09:30 | David Learmount

    ​Having examined the recent safety performance of oil- and gas-support helicopter operations in the UK sector of the North Sea, the UK Parliamentary Transport Select Committee has called for an independent public inquiry on the grounds that the Civil Aviation Authority “did not consider the evidence that commercial pressure impacts on helicopter safety”. It added that the “role and effectiveness” of the CAA also needs to be independently reviewed.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Committee-calls-for-public-inquiry-into-North-Sea-helicopter-safety-401218/

    ​The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 casts a shadow over an a set of excellent global airline safety figures for the first half of 2014 that would otherwise bust previous records by a big margin. The irony is that MH370 cannot yet be declared an "accident". The official line at present is that its loss was probably the result of deliberate action by someone on board.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/MH370-mars-otherwise-improved-safety-performance-for-first-half-of-2014-400935/
