Statoil will not use type of helicopter involved in crash again
An oil firm has said it has no plans to ever again use the make of helicopter involved in a crash which left 13 people - including an Aberdeenshire man - dead.
Iain Stuart, 41, from Laurencekirk, was among those killed in the crash off Norway in April.
The Airbus Super Puma H225 was flying to Bergen from the Statoil-operated Gullfaks field.
Statoil said it would not use the helicopter again.
The model in question has been grounded in the UK and Norway, but Statoil said it would not change its position when the suspension was lifted.
Air accident investigators found a fatigue crack was the "most likely" cause of gearbox failure.
Mr Stuart worked for the oil field services company Halliburton.
