Helicopter tragedies worrying, says deputy minister

Dateline 2016-06-21, FMT:

Helicopter operations need to be scrutinized in order to avoid any disaster or tragedy in the future, said Deputy Transport Minister Aziz Kaprawi.

He said the number of helicopter tragedies in the country was a bit worrying.

“Probably (the helicopter operations) need to be more refined and include the pilots. Definitely (relevant parties) need to identify the weaknesses in helicopter operations,” he told reporters after breaking fast with media personnel here last night.

Asked on the latest development on the helicopter crash in Sebuyau, Sarawak, on May 5, Aziz said the main frame of the helicopter was still missing.

The search would continue, he added.
