anticipated in late 2006. EGAC, a subsidiary of China Eastern Air

S-92 is configured to carry 19 passengers and two crew.

offshore oil market worldwide and we are happy to add EGAC to the
growing list of customers for this aircraft," said Stephen Estill,

helicopters and we are adding this S-92 to complement the two
S-76C++s we just ordered a month ago." said Mr. LI Jianmin,
President of EGAC.

in China and the one with the longest operating history. Based in
