EU exit

Please note that, in the event of UK participation in EASA and mutual recognition of licences and certificates ceasing, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the outcome of the transition period negotiations on the long-term aviation relationship between the UK and the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

Reference:SD-2017/002
Title:Airbus Helicopters EC225LP and AS332L2 Limitations of Operations due to a Fatal Accident in Norway on 29 April 2016 and Return to Service Requirements
Description:The purpose of this Safety and Operational Directive is to assure safe operations of Airbus Helicopters EC225LP and AS332L2 helicopters following a fatal accident in Norway with an EC225LP on the 29 April 2016 and replaces SD 2017/001. As a result of the further report from Accident Investigation Board Norway issued on the 28 April 2017, ongoing discussions with EASA, Airbus Helicopters and CAA Norway together with the publication of EASA AD 2017-0134 dated 27 July 2017, the UK CAA and CAA Norway (CAA-N) have determined that the aircraft may be returned to service under controlled conditions and in accordance with operator safety cases.


The SD/OD has been revoked as its purpose is achieved through compliance with the associated EASA Airworthiness Directives which are mandatory before conducting operations with these helicopters.
