    History


    Established 1939 by the three Schweizer brothers, the Schweizer Aircraft Corp started building helicopters in 1983 with the acquisition of the Hughes 269 license from Hughes (about to became part of McDonnell Douglas).

    In 2004 Schweizer was acquired by Sikorsky and became diversified aerospace company until 2012 when helicopter production ended and rest of operations were merged into the group.

    In January 2018, Schweizer RSG (part of Rotorcraft Services Group) acquired the light helicopter line from Sikorsky. The S300C, S300CBi, and S333 will be manufactured in Fort Worth, Texas. At the time, around 2,900 aircraft were in service worldwide.

    In 2021, Schweizer RSG delivered the first S-300C from the new production line to a a customer in Senegal and the first S-300CBi to distributor Oceania Aviation
