Sikorsky received a contract for 2007 delivery of an S-76C++ to LG International at last week’s Asian Aerospace 2006 trade show in Singapore. “The S-76++ sets the standard for quiet, comfortable and efficient corporate and VIP transport,” said Steve Estill, Sikorsky v-p for worldwide sales. “We look forward to delivering this aircraft to LG as a repeat S-76 customer.” The C++ is the current production configuration of the S-76 series, and Sikorsky said more than 60 aircraft have been ordered to date. The next generation, the S-76D, will be launched in 2008. Sikorsky is exhibiting here at Heli-Expo in Booths No. 2537 and 2149.
