    Era settles H225 helicopter lawsuit for $42 million

    In a stock exchange filing, Era says that the agreement settles all litigation against the manufacturer without either party admitting liability. Airbus Helicopters will pay $42 million in cash, as well as giving certain trade credits lasting for five years.
    Although regulators eventually cleared the 11t rotorcraft for service following the implementation of a number of safety measures, most offshore operators have kept their fleets idle.
    Era had claimed that Airbus Helicopters had sold the H225s with the full knowledge of a safety issue with the main gearbox.
    Also

    Norwegian investigators recommend H225 gearbox redesign

    "The investigation has shown that the combination of material properties, surface treatment, design, operational loading environment and debris gave rise to a failure mode which was not previously anticipated or assessed."
    […]
    In its sole recommendation aimed at the manufacturer, SHT recommends that "Airbus Helicopters revise the type design to improve the robustness, reliability and safety of the main gearbox in the AS332 L2 and EC225".
    Airbus Helicopters is unlikely to undertake a wholesale redesign of the main gearbox for the Super Puma line, but will instead bring incremental changes to the component.
    […]
    In addition, EASA was equally at fault, it says: "In summary, Airbus Helicopters and EASA did not successfully manage to realise the safety potential from the G-REDL accident report."
    Noting that the failure of a single component caused the catastrophic failure of the main gearbox and subsequent loss of the main rotor, SHT also recommends that EASA develop a main gearbox certification specification to prevent such a situation occurring on future designs.

    The new helicopters will be the first MH-47G Chinooks to include new Block II upgrades, which are expected to be incorporated into all variants of the H-47 fleet used by the Army.
