Sikorsky has taken delivery of a new, ergonomically improved crew seat for the S-92. Supplied by British manufacturer Martin-Baker, best known for fast-jet ejection seats, the new reclining seat features a headrest, adjustable armrests, thigh support and improved seat padding and meets all current FAA safety and crashworthiness requirements.

Sikorsky and Martin-Baker worked with three early S-92 customers to define the new crew seat features and to benchmark the seat during development and design reviews. The seat meets the crashworthiness requirements of FAR/JAR Part 29 and the flammability resistance of FAR Part 25.853(b).
