    The Sikorsky S-61L first flew on 2 November 1961, and was 4ft 3in (1.27m) longer than the HSS-2 in order to carry a substantial payload of freight or passengers. Initial production S-61Ls were powered by two 1350shp (1005kW) GE CT58-140 turboshafts, the civil version of the military T58. The S-61L features modified landing gear struts without float stabilisers. Mitsubishi Heavy Insudtries received a license to produce the S-61L for the Asian market in 1961.
