Sikorsky Aircraft recently delivered the second of two VIP S-92 helicopters to the Turkish National Police (TNP) as part of a contract signed in 2011.
"Turkey has long been a strategically important and valued customer for Sikorsky. Delivery of these two aircraft marks another step in our continuing relationship," said Carey Bond, President, Sikorsky Global Helicopters. "We greatly appreciate the trust and confidence the Turkish Government has shown for decades in our products and our company."
In addition to Turkey, S-92 helicopters currently transport the leaders of nine other nations. This summer, Sikorsky formally offered the S-92 platform to the U.S. Government, which is seeking to replace the "Marine One" helicopter fleet that transports the President of the United States.
The S-92 aircraft is the first and only helicopter in its class certified to the latest U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and European airworthiness safety standards. In addition to the Head of State mission, S-92 helicopters perform search and rescue (SAR) missions as well as a variety of transportation missions for offshore oil and gas crews, utility and airline passengers. Since entering service in September 2004, the S-92 fleet has grown to 200 aircraft. The global fleet has logged more than 600,000 flight hours to date.
The two S-92 helicopters join a robust fleet of more than 130 Sikorsky helicopters currently operating in Turkey, including seven S-76 commercial helicopters.
