sikorsky CH-148 Cyclone

in canada Canadian Armed Forces


2010 to present







CH-148 Cyclone Canadian Armed Forces

History of this Model in this Organisation:

On November 2004, the Sikorsky S-92 was chosen to replace the CH-124 Sea King. The Air Command ordered 28 aircraft for shipboard operations from Canadian warships. The first airframe was delivered for trials in 2010. On early 2012 after several complications in the program the first batch of operational aircraft was delayed to 2014.

As of December 2012 it is unclear when the helicopters in their final configuration will be delivered.

The CH-148 will require modifications to the haul-down system on the decks of the Halifax class FFHs and 12 C-RAST systems are to be delivered by Dec 2011. These will be installed by a team from GD Canada and Fleetway.

On 2012 $700,000 were spend to undo portions of the Frigates $4-million renovation project to deal with the delays in the helicopter programme.
