The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) made 17 recommendations as a result of its investigation into the accident to Aerospatiale (Eurocopter) AS332 L2 Super Puma, G-REDL on 1 April 2009. Of these two remain “open”.

The AAIB assesses whether responses to recommendations meet the intent of the recommendations and publishes its findings in an Annual Safety Report (previously named the Progress Report) on its website www.aaib.gov.uk

The AAIB does not monitor the implementation of safety recommendations.
