    US Marine Corps VH-92A

    In May 2014, Sikorsky proposal VH-92 was selected as the future Marine One helicopter to transport the President of the United States. The decision follows the cancellation of the first winner of the VXX competition, the AgustaWestland VH-71 Kestrel.

    17 production aircraft are expected to be delivered by 2023. First flight of a converted airframe took place on June 2015
