Sikorsky Thanks S-92 Helicopter Operators and Steps Up Support in Key North Sea Region

Sikorsky Thanks S-92 Helicopter Operators and Steps Up Support in Key North Sea Region


Lockheed Martin, September 20, 2016 - STAVANGER, NORWAY – Sikorsky today continued its celebration of the S-92 helicopter fleet’s one million flight hour milestone with events in the North Sea Region, the largest S-92 operating area in the world. Sikorsky is a Lockheed Martin Company.

Celebrating Monday in Aberdeen, Scotland, and Tuesday in Stavanger, Norway, Sikorsky executives thanked operators and customers for their dedication and trust in the S-92 helicopter to transport oil and gas workers.

The S-92 helicopter, with an accident rate less than 1/10th of the U.S. Civil Multi-Turbine engine helicopter rate, sets a high industry standard for safety and reliability. Of the S-92 fleet’s first one million flight hours, 87 percent were flown in support of offshore oil missions with a greater than 95 percent availability rate.

“We are proud to recognize our S-92 customers and to thank the operators in this region who fly more than 90 Sikorsky S-92 helicopters,” said Sikorsky President Dan Schultz, adding that, “Recently we’ve seen a 20 percent increase in operational rates for S-92s overall, and Sikorsky continues to expand our support capabilities to our customers around the world, to include forward stocking locations (FSL) in Aberdeen and Stavanger. Our commitment at Sikorsky is to deliver a safe and reliable aircraft everywhere, every time.”

Sikorsky’s newest forward stocking location, at Aberdeen Airport Dyce, will begin operations by the end of the third quarter. Sikorsky will also expand its current FSL at Stavanger Airport by the end of the year.

Since 2004, Sikorsky has delivered more than 275 S-92 helicopters. Eleven nations fly the dual-engine S-92 helicopter for their head of state missions. In May 2014, The U.S. Navy selected Sikorsky for the U.S. Presidential Helicopter Replacement Program, using the S-92 platform.

As part of the S-92 helicopter fleet’s one million flight hour milestone, Sikorsky has launched a “Thanks a Million” campaign to thank customers, employees, operators, and suppliers for achieving this landmark in an impressively short time.
