The EASA has issued a further emergency AD on other Eurocopter models after an AS332 Super Puma started to roll toward the edge of an offshore helideck. The flight crew was not aware a hydraulic failure was also affecting wheel brake capability. The new AD, issued in June, is requiring a “rush revision” of the flight manual on the Dauphin series (SA365N, AS365N and EC155). The first AD called for a flight-manual revision on the SA330, AS332 and EC225 Super Pumas.
