After several last-minute delays, Sikorsky delivered the first production S-92 to Petroleum Helicopters, which will use it for offshore service over the Gulf of Mexico. A second was due to be dispatched at press time and further arrivals are scheduled before year-end. Sikorsky plans to deliver an additional 18 aircraft next year. Including options, Sikorsky has orders for 60 S-92s.
