Current maintenance and upkeep of Yellow Sea Kings and Grey Sea Kings

Current maintenance and upkeep of Yellow Sea Kings and Grey Sea Kings at Gannet SAR is carried out by AgustaWestland under the provisions of the SKIOS contract. SKIOS is Mil 145 accredited. Please read this link:

Since the Haddon-Cave enquiry and the formation of the MAA things have changed considerably with respect to regulations concerning aircraft maintenance and many other things. I am not quite sure in my own mind how you would be able to comply and then continue to comply with current regulations for a flying an acquired Sea King without attracting considerable expense and diving through a helluva lot of fiery hoops.
It's a lovely idea but I think you would need an awful lot of money to make and continue to make it happen.
