Eastern General Aviation to Purchase One Sikorsky S-92 Offshore Oil Helicopter


China s Eastern General Aviation Corp (EGAC) to purchase one S-92 for offshore oil support in the Bohai Bay area

Sikorsky, September 15, 2005 - SHANGHAI, China - Eastern General Aviation Corporation (EGAC) has agreed to purchase one Sikorsky S-92 helicopter to serve offshore oil support missions in the Bohai Bay area.

Delivery is anticipated in late 2006.

EGAC, a subsidiary of China Eastern Air Holding Company, signed the agreement today with Sikorsky. This S-92 is configured to carry 19 passengers and two crew.

"The S-92 has quickly become the aircraft of choice in the offshore oil market worldwide and we are happy to add EGAC to the growing list of customers for this aircraft," said Stephen Estill, Sikorsky's Vice President for Worldwide Sales.

"Sikorsky helicopters are proven to be the best offshore helicopters and we are adding this S-92 to complement the two S-76C++ helicopters we just ordered a month ago," said Mr. LI Jianmin, President of EGAC.

EGAC is one of the three largest offshore helicopter operators in China and the one with the longest operating history. Based in Tianjin, China, EGAC has been supporting oil companies in northern China, especially in the Bohai Bay area, for the past 20 years.

Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, based in Stratford, Conn., is a world leader in helicopter design, manufacturing and service. Sikorsky is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corporation (NYSE: UTX), of Hartford, Conn., which provides a broad range of high-technology products and support services to the aerospace and building systems industries.
