  • Canadian Armed Forces CH-148 Cyclone
  • Canadian Armed Forces CH-148 CycloneFirst all RCAF crew lands on frigate, January 2016
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.
On January 2016, an all RCAF crew first lands on a Navy frigate
On September 2016 was revealed that the CH-148 will not achieve Full Operational Capability (FOC, that is the capacity to make overseas deployments) until 2025
