FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

14TH APRIL 2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HELICOPTER COMPANY BACK IN THE AIR

Broome Helicopter Services (BHS) is back in the air after concerns and intervention by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) a few weeks ago. On Friday April 11th 2014 all operations returned to normal after a hearing with the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.

 

 

During the Tribunal Hearing comments made by past employees to CASA were proven to be false and misleading and some factual details to be incorrect. These same employees are involved in the Fair Work case that is currently being defended by BHS. The tribunal found there was no risk to aviation safety that should stop BHS from flying.

 

 

Director and Chief Pilot, Mr Calandra said “We have always been confident we would be successful and the good news reflects our 11 years operation and community support. I would like to thank all the individuals and businesses who continue to support us.”

 

 

Mr Calandra goes on to say “We are not angered by the actions of CASA and understand their responsibilities in accordance with aviation safety. We will continue to work effectively with CASA to ensure our company complies with all safety regulations and requirements.”

 

 

BHS have returned to business as usual with all tourist and corporate operations effective immediately.
