The S-92 global helicopter fleet has surpassed 500,000 flight hours.

“In the nine years that the S-92 has been steadily carving its place in the large helicopter market segment, it has grown from the ‘new kid on the block’ proving its potential to a super performer in a variety of missions,” said Carey Bond, President of Sikorsky Global Helicopters.

More than 90 per cent of all S-92 hours are flown in the offshore configuration. Designers mandated FAR/JAR safety margins, on-condition maintenance and revenue-producing operating costs for commercial customers.
