BALPA response to Bond Air Services decision to ground its fleet of EC 135s
"The information published by the AAIB today is a helpful first assessment of the facts of the case and suggests there is no evidence of mechanical engine failure. But, unfortunately, at this stage, there is not much more to go on and the reasons behind the crash are, in truth, far from clear. The AAIB must be given the time to complete its thorough investigation and we have faith in their ability to do so."
BALPA extends its sympathy to everyone affected in Glasgow last night, especially, of course, to the families of those who have died. We pay tribute to the emergency services for their response.
