A Super Puma helicopter, carrying 18 passengers and 2 crew members, made a precautionary landing on British Petroleum’s North Sea Platform in UK on October 29.
The chopper was heading to the Forties Unity facility of British Petroleum when a rotor alert prompted it to land at the nearby Forties Charlie platform.
The landing remained uneventful and no injuries were reported.
A Bond spokesperson said after the incident, “A technical issue was reported on an EC225 aircraft. As a routine precautionary measure the aircraft landed on the nearby Forties Charlie platform, where it will be examined by engineers.”
Bond released a statement after examination, saying, “As suspected this was an issue with the indicator, not the helicopter. It is now fully cleared for flight and completely airworthy and en route back to Aberdeen.”
