The Sikorsky S-92

The Sikorsky S-92

The Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation is an American aircraft manufacturer based in Stratford, and it was established by Igor Sikorsky in 1925. The S-92 helicopter is the most advanced aircraft in Sikorsky’s civil product line. It was also certified to the most stringent safety requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration and the European Aviation Safety Agency.

Airline configured S-92 helicopters seat up to 19 passengers, with power and endurance that enable fully loaded flights up to 430 nautical miles. The S-92 is multi-purpose helicopter powered by twin GE CT7-8A turboshaft engines. The four-bladed fully articulated composite main rotor blade is wider and has a longer radius than the Sikorsky S-70 and most of the rotor system components aside from the blades are titanium. The S-92 is capable of 190mph top speed for up to 539nm.

The Sikorsky features an active vibration control system. Using vibration sensors and structurally mounted force generators it provides comfortable flight and acoustic levels below certification requirements and also prolongs airframe life by reducing fatigue loads on the aircraft. The stand-up cabin provides the ultimate comfort and safety.
Sikorsky and Lockheed Martin secured a contract to begin building a new presidential helicopter based on Sikorsky’s S-92.

More precisely, in May 2014, Sikorsky was awarded a US$1.2 billion contract to produce the next generation of helicopters used to transport the United States President, Vice President, Cabinet members, and foreign dignitaries. The contract is to modify, test and deliver six S-92 helicopters and two trainer simulators to the U.S. Marine Corps and it will eventually supply 21 aircraft by 2023.
