Newfoundland Helicopter Crash Lawsuit Setted

In March of 2009, seventeen people perished in a helicopter crash off the coast of Newfoundland. The Sikorsky S-92A helicopter was making an emergency return to St. John’s airport when it plunged into the ocean, killing all on board.

In June, a lawsuit was filed against Sikorsky, Keystone Helicopters and United Technologies Corp. alleging there were obvious safety concerns and a Transportation Safety Board reports the helicopter’s tail rotor gears had been damaged and may have caused the pilots to lost control of the aircraft.

In July, the sides entered into discussions to settled the case, but are not releasing details of the settlement.

Families of the victims said their goal was also to get answers as to the caused of the crash in an effort to prevent this from happening again.
