Milestone Aviation Group (Booth No. 5114) and Sikorsky (Booth No. 2822) recognized two noteworthy achievements for the companies during opening day of Heli-Expo 2014.
Sikorsky’s Carey Bond joined Milestone chairman and co-founder Richard Santulli in the ceremonial signing of a contract for eight additional S-92 medium-lift helicopters. “I bought my first Sikorsky product in 1983, and developed a relationship with [them] over many years,” recalled Santulli; upon signing the contract, Bond quipped that Santulli could “keep the pen,” in anticipation of the next order from the company.
Both companies also recognized National Helicopter Services Ltd. (NHSL) of Trinidad and Tobago, lessee of the Sikorsky S-76D that operated the first revenue flight for the type earlier this month.
