Change ), “The S-92A would still crash in 11 minutes.”.

It's expensive to go to trial for the litigants and the attempt is to resolve as soon as possible.".

"We don't ever comment on litigation," Sikorsky spokesman Paul Jackson said Thursday from Connecticut, where the company is based.

Did regulators ignore warning signs before S-92 crash which killed 17? Sikorsky issued an alert service bulletin six weeks before the Cougar crash telling S-92 operators to replace the titanium studs with steel parts.

Several MGB oil problems in the field before the Cougar accident however indicate that the failure rate was approximately once per 50,000 flight hours. The helicopter was a Cougar from the 5th Combat Helicopter Regiment (5th RHC) of Pau, they said. Non-subscribers can read and sort comments but will not be able to engage with them in any way. Mr. Coyle said there's little chance the lawsuit will go to trial. That lawsuit, which had asked for jury trial, claimed that Sikorsky “engaged in a pattern of reckless and conscious disregard for the safety passengers of their S-92A helicopters”, in part by falsely advertising that the S-92A had a 30-min run-dry capability for its main gear box, a factor they say prompted the crew to try to fly back to land rather than plan for an orderly ditching.

Since landfall was within 30 minutes’ flying time, Cougar maintains that its pilots acted properly when they turned the helicopter around, rather than ditching immediately, after the low-pressure warning alerted. A lawsuit claiming damages of almost $27-million accuses Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. of "reckless behaviour and willful misconduct" in the Cougar helicopter crash … "By promoting and advertising the S-92 as having a '30-minute run-dry' capacity, Sikorsky fraudulently misrepresented to buyers and operators the airworthiness and flight safety of the S-92," says the claim. But the Jan. 28, 2009 bulletin didn't make compliance essential for one year or 1,250 flight hours.
