Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. has added three deliveries of S-92
helicopters to their list this week as the Korean Air Force took
part in a ceremony during the Seoul Air Show.
"With significantly enhanced aircraft survivability,
communication and navigation capabilities, the S-92 helicopter is a
proven leader in the VIP and Head-of-State mission categories.
Today's delivery ceremony is further recognition of the strength of
this aircraft as well as the strong relationship that Sikorsky and
the Korean Air Force continue to build," said Sikorsky Vice
President Stephen B. Estill.
The S-92 helicopter is equipped to perform a variety of missions
including offshore oil transport, head of state and VIP transport,
search and rescue, and commercial airline service. The S-92
helicopter continues to perform at a high operational tempo with
the fleet recently passing 58,000 total flight hours. The S-92 was
the first helicopter in the world certified to the latest FAA and
European Aviation Safety Agency safety standards. The S-92 features
a Rotor Ice Protection System (RIPS), which is available on S-92
helicopter military variants as well as commercial aircraft.
