Canadian operator Fig Air Signs for a Sikorsky S-76D VIP Helicopter


Lockheed Martin, September 12, 2016 - STRATFORD, Connecticut – Fig Air Inc., a Toronto-based VIP and corporate helicopter operator, has signed for a Sikorsky S-76D helicopter.

This sale will result in the first delivery of the Sikorsky S-76D helicopter to a Canadian helicopter operator. Sikorsky is a Lockheed Martin Company (NYSE: LMT).

Charles Bouchard, chief executive for Lockheed Martin Canada and a former Royal Canadian Air Force helicopter pilot, said, “We are thrilled to be able to provide Fig Air with such a capable solution to meet their VIP service requirements. We welcomed Sikorsky to the Lockheed Martin family a year ago, and it is clear they are uniquely suited to provide a diverse range of helicopter solutions to meet Canada’s commercial and defense markets.”

S-76D helicopter VIP options include a customized interior with seating for five to eight passengers. Uniquely, the S-76D helicopter can hold its rotor system still while running an engine to power the on-board air-conditioning system for safe, comfortable loading and unloading into the pre-cooled cabin during the summer season and hot climates.

Sikorsky has delivered more than 850 S-76 helicopters to customers globally since 1979, contributing daily to nearly 7 million fleet flight hours.

About Lockheed Martin: Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 98,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
