This 1989 Sikorsky S-76, with an abundance of gold cabin fittings can be yours if the price is right.

President Trump’s 1989 Sikorsky S-76B is for sale. The helicopter frequently appeared on camera during much of Trump’s 14-year tenure on the reality television show “The Apprentice” and during his 2016 presidential campaign. It is one of three S-76s operated for the Trump Organization. N76DT, s/n 760351, is listed by Aero Asset with a price of “make offer,” but is believed to have a market value near $800,000 based on current market conditions and equipment.  

The average retail price for a 1989 S-76B is $725,000, according to the aircraft valuation service Vref, but the glut of models on the market and parts availability issues are believed to have driven sales prices below this number. N76DT is currently hangared in New Jersey and is listed with a TTAF of 6,259.3. Its twin Pratt & Whitney PT6B-36A engines are enrolled on ESP Gold and are slightly past their 4,000-hour mid-time since their last overhauls.  

According to the listing, the helicopter is equipped for single-pilot IFR (SPIFR) operations and features an instrument and communications package with Honeywell dual SPZ-7000 DAFCS, standby self-contained altitude indicator with battery back-up, dual IDC encoding altimeters, ADS-B, weather radar, TCAS, moving map, satcom, and Airshow. The six-place executive passenger compartment is fitted with soundproofing and finished in African mahogany veneer, acru/almond leather, cream ultra suede, and an abundance of gold fittings.
