The 1976 S-76 was the first Sikorsky helicopter designed solely for non-military usage and aimed primarily at the corporate and the offshore Oil & Gas transportation markets.
The original S-76 first flew on March 13, 1977, prior to entering service in 1979 establishing at that time a world record in terms of range, climb, speed, and ceiling capability.
The latest S-76 model designed S-76D first flew on February 7, 2009, and entered service in 2012, powered by two 1,050-horsepower Pratt & Whitney Canada PW210S turboshaft engines driving a redesigned four-bladed fully articulated main rotor. The S-92D flight deck features THALES TOPDECK avionics suite with four IAD 68 (Integrated Avionics Displays) including a dual embedded FMS functionality. Dual Flight Control Modules (FCM) and actuators provide the four-axis autopilot with Stability Augmentation System (SAS).

The cabin features a large hinged door for easy boarding and is complemented by a 38 ft3 baggage compartment.
The S-76D brings improved noise signature and a smoother ride over all previous variants with advanced flight controls and the Active Vibration Control (AVC) system, allowing the luxurious, cocoon interior to provides a restful space for conversation, communication, and productivity.
