The 11t-class helicopter, and the related AS332 L2, remains grounded by the authorities in those two countries, despite European regulators lifting a ban imposed after a fatal accident in April 2016 in which 13 people were killed.

Helicopter manufacturer Sikorsky has grounded all S92 aircraft worldwide for safety checks following an incident on a North Sea platform.
Operators were instructed to carry out the checks immediately, centred on tail rotors. Many of the inspections were completed by Tuesday afternoon. The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) is investigating an incident on the West Franklin Platform which happened last month. An S92 experienced a technical fault when it was coming in to land. It left "significant gouge marks" on the deck of the platform.
