U.K. Royal Household Selects Sikorsky Aircraft as Preferred Supplier for Royal Family Helicopter
(Source: Sikorsky Aircraft Corp.; issued Nov. 19, 2007)

Quote:
"STRATFORD, Conn. --- The Royal Household of the United Kingdom has chosen Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. as the preferred supplier to provide the next helicopter for the Royal Family's transportation. Sikorsky is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp.

[.....]

'The new S76C++, which will continue to provide the Royal Family with a helicopter travel service for official engagements, was chosen as most closely meeting the mission requirements, providing the best value and producing the lowest carbon footprint of the three short-listed helicopters,' said Captain Christopher Pittaway, Manager and Chief Pilot of The Queen's Helicopter Flight.

'Quality, safety, performance and styling distinguish the S-76C++ helicopter as an aircraft of choice for VVIP transport,' said Steve Estill, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Sikorsky Aircraft. 'We are honored that the Royal Family and so many others entrust their safety and comfort to us.'

The new S76C++ helicopter is expected to enter service in August 2009.

The S-76C++ helicopter features engine, air vehicle, interior and avionics upgrades. These include a more powerful Turbomeca Arriel 2S2 Engine, an inlet barrier filter to protect the engine against erosion and environmental contaminants, a new VIP interior, new optional Health and Usage Monitoring System and a quiet main gearbox using Quiet Zone(TM) technology that significantly reduces interior noise levels without any weight maintenance penalties."

Seems a bit ironic considering who is building the new Presidential helicopters.  Smile


If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the outcome of a hundred battles.
