bristowThe Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has suspended Bristow’s operation of the Sikorsky helicopter type.

This follows the helicopter incident that occurred on Wednesday in which 11 people were rescued.

The NCAA said that its decision is a precautionary measure and would not in anyway interfere with the ongoing investigation.
