Sikorsky’s S-92 equipped with the OEM’s new rotor ice protection system (RIPS) has been FAA certified for flight in known icing conditions. Sikorsky is seeking S-92 RIPS certification from the EASA and Transport Canada. A Cessna Citation involved with the S-92 icing program in Alaska on September 30 flamed out in icing conditions and made a deadstick landing with no serious injuries to the four people on board.
