Posted 31 July 2013 · Add Comment

Angolan oil company Sonangol has become the first to take the Eurocopter's EC225 back into operation through its aviation division SonAir.

The type was grounded in October 2012 following an incident related to a shaft failure issue.
It carried out three flights with two of its 11 EC225 helicopter fleet from its base at Luanda to a pair of offshore platforms.
SonAir also flies four AS332 L2s and three AS365 N3s. The company’s CEO, Joao Andrade, said the three “routine” flights confirmed that the EC225’s return-to-service “is backed by strong safety measures”
