Sikorsky Signs VIH Up For One More S-92

Deal Announced At Heli-Expo 2007

Last Friday, Sikorsky Aircraft and VIH Aviation Group Ltd. signed a contract to provide another S-92 helicopter to support offshore oil operations in Northeastern Canada.

The aircraft will be used by VIH's subsidiary, Cougar Helicopters Inc. It is expected to be delivered in July 2008. This will be the third consecutive S-92 purchase by VIH for Cougar within the last five months. This latest purchase increases the current VIH/Cougar inventory to six S-92 aircraft.

"Today's signing clearly demonstrates VIH/Cougar's continuing commitment to the S-92 as a vibrant part of offshore oil operations," said Jeffrey Pino, Sikorsky President. "Sikorsky appreciates the confidence VIH/Cougar and its end-user customers have in the S-92. We hope to continue to work together on future procurements."

Ken Norie, President/CEO of VIH and Cougar, said the S-92 has been a reliable and popular aircraft for his company.

"We selected the S-92 because of its reliability, increasing product maturity, and the economic value it represents in operation. Additionally our end-user customers like the space and comfort of the S-92 and Sikorsky's legacy of commitment to safety," Norie said.
