Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the S-92® helicopter operating in China. Sikorsky made the announcement at Booth H6E1 during Airshow China.

“Sikorsky holds a long-standing relationship with China, providing more than 30 years of service to the China civil aviation industry,” said Sikorsky’s Vice President for Strategy & Business Development, Nathalie Previte. “We’re excited to celebrate a decade of operation of the S-92 helicopter in China. As we celebrate one million flight hours flown by customers throughout the world, we thank all operators for their continued trust, firm support and confidence in Sikorsky.”

In 2006, Sikorsky delivered China’s first S-92 and S-76® aircraft to customers. Now more than 35 S-92 and 125 S-76 aircraft operate in China and throughout Asia, including the modern S-76D helicopter.  The majority of these aircraft perform the critical mission of offshore oil transportation.

Since 2004, Sikorsky has delivered more than 275 S-92 helicopters globally.

As part of the S-92 helicopter fleet’s one million flight hour milestone, Sikorsky has launched a “Thanks a Million” campaign to thank customers, employees, operators and suppliers for achieving this milestone in an impressively short time.
