A Transportation Safety Board report into the deadly Cougar Flight 491 helicopter crash off Newfoundland recommended grounding flights over seas that are too rough for a survivable emergency landing. Board chairwoman Wendy Tadros told a news conference February 9th in St. John's that another recommendation dealt with loss of oil pressure. (The TSB said there were a total of 16 factors that led to the crash of Cougar Flight 491. The two pilots and 15 passengers died when the chopper went out of control and crashed on March 12th, 2009. One person survived.)
