Sikorsky Aircraft’s new S-76D helicopter received certification from Mexico’s civil aviation authority, the Direccion General de Aeronautica Civil (DGAC), this week. The FAA gave its blessing for the S-76D in October, and the helicopter continues its envelope expansion as the first models move through final modifications for customer deliveries this year. Aeroservicios Especializados is the launch customer for the S-76D in Mexico, with a firm order for six; it will use the helicopters to support offshore oil platforms operated by Mexican oil and gas conglomerate Pemex.
