Shares of helicopter operator Bristow Group (BRS -1.6%) slip after disclosing in an SEC filing that it has suspended operations with its EC225 Puma helicopters after one operated by another company was forced on Monday to ditch on the North Sea. All 19 passengers survived, but the Civil Aviation Authority ordered companies to refrain from using EC225 Puma helicopters - of which BRS has 16 - until further notice.
