China COHC to get two S-92 in 2015


Sikorsky, September 06, 2013 - TIANJIN, China - Sikorsky Aircraft and China’s CITIC Offshore Helicopter Company (COHC) today marked the purchase of two S-92® helicopters with a ceremonial signing at the China Helicopter Exposition.

Sikorsky Aircraft is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp.

Established in 1983, COHC is a publicly traded company based in Shenzhen, Guandong, China, where it is the largest provider of offshore operations. The contract was announced in June and celebrated today in China.

“COHC is one of our newer customers, so we are proud to say that all three major offshore oil service providers in China will now be operating Sikorsky helicopters,” said Ed Beyer, Vice President of Sikorsky Global Helicopters, the commercial aircraft business of Sikorsky Aircraft.

“The offshore oil market in China is growing rapidly, and the S-92 helicopter has proven to be a reliable and safe performer around the world. We are grateful that COHC has chosen Sikorsky, and we are confident that this marks the beginning of a long-term relationship between us.”

The two new aircraft are schedule for delivery in in December 2014 and March 2015.

The multi-mission S-92 helicopter incorporates numerous safety features, including a flaw-tolerant design. The aircraft was certified to FAA/EASA harmonized Part 29 requirements, as amended through Amendment 47, and remains the only aircraft certified to this rigorous airworthiness standard without exception or waiver.

Sikorsky will deliver its 200th S-92 helicopter this year. The global fleet is currently approaching 590,000 flight hours. Among the missions performed by the S-92 helicopter are offshore oil worker transportation, Head of State transport, search and rescue operations, and airline service.

Sikorsky Aircraft, based in Stratford, Conn., is a world leader in helicopter design, manufacture and service. United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Conn., provides a broad range of high technology products and support services to the aerospace and building systems industries.
