EC225 and it's family is a helicopter that is hated in the Norwegian oil industry and have a bad reputation.
Drop more info on PM? This is not about that one accident that they broke the hub in transport and that lead to catastrophe?
- uncomfortable for workers going out to the oil platform in the North sea, Sikorsky is favorite among the oil-crew, comfortable and space. They have to wear full survivel cloath, some can be quite clumsy, when you have an accident
- helicopter losing rotor, the hub that got damaged under transport, was a bit small, when considering the pressure the helicopter are under flight in the North sea.
- many occasions where helicopter either had to return due to an alarm going off all the time or not go out due to alarms before take off. Crew feel unsafe when a helicopter always have a alarm going off all the time. The alarm that goes often is the Oil-pressure alarm, specially during flight
-the only reason they are using the EC225 and family, is noice in local areas where people lives. Sikorsky make more noice but people that live close to these airports...
