Lockheed Martin, March 07, 2017 - In March 2017, Sikorsky launched its S-92 and S-76D Flight Crew Operating Manuals following peer reviews in 2016.
The new manuals help pilots understand the intent of each helicopter’s system operations and are part of an effort led by HeliOffshore to enhance safety and build collaboration across the industry. The FCOMs will be displayed at Sikorsky’s booth 8114 as part of the iFly Sikorsky™ Electronic Flight Bag.
“Following a thorough and interactive peer review process, we are proud to officially launch these new Flight Crew Manuals into operation,” said Dana Fiatarone, vice president, Sikorsky Commercial Systems and Services.
“The FCOM emphasizes the use of aircraft automation and begins to describe techniques for operating our aircraft based on the OEM design, development intent and unique systems integration. This knowledge increases pilot effectiveness and overall aircraft safety – a major focus at Sikorsky.”
The S-92 and S-76D helicopter FCOMs and EFB applications complement the current Flight Manuals and add to the iFly Sikorsky suite of pilot applications on the Apple iPad.
