The Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation is an American helicopter and aircraft manufacturer based in Stratford, Connecticut. It was established by Igor Sikorsky in 1925 and was among the first companies to manufacture helicopters for civilian and military use. Sikorsky Aircraft was sold to Lockheed Martin by United Technologies Corp in November of 2015; UTC owned the company for 86 years. Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) is an American global aerospace, defense, security and advanced technologies company with worldwide interests. It was formed by the merger of Lockheed Corporation with Martin Marietta in March 1995. It is headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, in the Washington, DC, area. Lockheed Martin employs 97,000 people worldwide.
Since 1977, more than 850 S-76® aircraft have been delivered world-wide. We were proud to announce at this year’s HAI Heli-Expo that the fleet has amassed more than 7 million total fleet flight hours, while continuing its legacy of safety and reliability. The 40-year anniversary of the S-76’s first flight was celebrated on March 13, 2017.
The Offshore mission accounts for 65 percent of the total flight hours accumulated fleet-wide to date. More than 10 percent of the fleet’s flight hours have been flown in the critical life-saving missions of Search and Rescue and Helicopter Air Ambulance transportation. The S-76 is well-known for its work in VIP transportation and utility work. Today, it continues dependable service for all of these mission segments.
More than 130 customers operate S-76 helicopters in a Corporate or VIP role. Ten countries rely on the S-76 for the Head of State mission.
Sikorsky is proud of the S-76 fleet’s legacy. With more than 7 million hours of service, we are committed to supporting the platform and to continuous product improvements.
The S-92® helicopter has become the industry’s standard. It leads the way in compliance with the latest U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and European airworthiness safety standards by meeting or exceeding oil and gas industry requirements. With more than one million fleet flight hours of service, the S-92 helicopter sets standard for safety.
Eleven nations have selected the S-92 helicopter for their critical Head of State missions. In May 2014, Sikorsky was honored to win the U.S. Navy Contract to Replace ‘Marine One’ Helicopter Fleet and the vote of confidence in the S-92 as a proven and trusted platform. The world’s most advanced executive transport helicopter will be built off of our commercial platform.
