Twenty-four hours after one of the helicopter in the fleet of Bristow Helicopters carrying eleven people on board including nine passengers and two crews was ditched into the Atlantic Ocean around Lagos, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has suspended the operations of Bristow Helicopters till further notice.

Announcing the suspension some minutes ago, the director general of the NCAA, Captain Usman Mukthar, attributed the suspension to the incessant records of air mishaps that the company has witnessed in the recent past.

The suspension according to the DG is to enable the regulatory body and the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) to carry out a detailed audit on the aircraft type, a Sikorsky S-76C with registration number 5N – BDG – 760540 which was involved in the incident.
