Sikorsky Aircraft launched iFly Sikorsky, its first iPad flight calculator application for the company’s commercial S-92 helicopter platform, here at Heli-Expo 2014. The application replicates common performance calculations described in the S-92 Rotorcraft Flight Manual (RFM) and also has a weight-and-balance calculator.

“The S-92 iPad performance calculator is customized to operators’ specific configurations and eliminates tedious, labor-intensive calculations and the use of paper charters and maps,” said Lawrence Varholak, director of fleet analytics and product support engineering for the Stratford, Conn.-based OEM.

The iFly Sikorsky app complements the company’s new offshore platform approach system for S-92s, known as Rig Approach, which provides offshore oil operators with an automated approach and departure capability from elevated helidecks. The app can calculate the maximum allowable approach and departure weight based on current ambient conditions. Sikorsky is developing a similar iPad application for the S-76.
