Eagle Copters Maintenance Ltd. and Maldivian Air Taxi

Calgary, AB: (Apr-28-07) In a wrongful death lawsuit filed in Calgary Court of Queen's Bench by the survivors of Harry Chernetz, a settlement was reached with the dead man's family, and two of the companies sued over his death. Chernetz, 51, perished with nine others on Dec. 3, 1999, when their helicopter plunged into the Indian Ocean, near Rangali Island in the Republic of Maldives shortly after take-off. After consultations with insurers, Eagle Copters Maintenance Ltd., and Maldivian Air Taxi remained as defendants to streamline the case. They admitted liability for Chernetz's death and held a trial in late 2005, to determine proper damages. In a settlement reached more than seven years after his death, the family of the Calgary businessman received $3,215,000 for his untimely demise. [CALGARY SUN: HELICOPTER CRASH]
