Helicopter operator CHC is reportedly being audited by the Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).
The move comes just a couple of months after a helicopter crash, which killed 13 people as it made its way back from Statoil’s Gullfaks B platform to Flesland Airport.
The flight had been an EC225 helicopter operated by CHC.
According to reports in Norwegian media, CHC is now being financially audited in relation to the connection between “an operator companies’ financial solidity and security”.
A spokesman for the company said: “CHC Norway will work closely with the NCAA and provide all necessary information required as it carries out its assessment.”
In May of this year, the company’s US operations filed for Chapter 11 protection in the US.
However, this is not connected to the audit on its Norwegian business.
The US group’s business in the Scandinavian country accounts for 43% of its total revenue.
The managing director of the CAA said the move had been made on the basis of the recent helicopter accident as well as measures implemented in the aftermath by CHC.
