Development of the S-92 multi-purpose heavy helicopter from US helicopter leader Sikorsky is the direct result of the 1973 world oil crisis, pushing all major oil and gas companies to begin exploring further offshore oilfields.  

Launched in 1992, the S-92 completed its first flight on December 23rd, 1998 before FAA certification in December 2002 and entering to service with Louisiana based Oil & Gas transportation specialist PHI in 2004

The S-92 is powered by twin General Electric CT7-8A turboshaft engines and equipped with a four-bladed fully articulated rotor. The airframe is made from aluminum with few composite components and features an advanced active vibration control system and an Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) providing DC Power and Hydraulic pressure for ground operation.

The S-92 has been selected by the United States Marine Corps to replace the older Sikorsky SH-3 Sea-King based Marine One U.S. presidential transport helicopter, under VH-92 Designation.

Seating up to 19 passengers on a typical Oil & Gas transport mission, the S-92 can host up to 22 passengers in a utility transport configuration with side-mounted stowable seats.

In the Executive / VIP configuration, the large 6-feet stand-up cabin of the S-92 allows for an airliner-type interior. The S-92 can, therefore, surpass most large business jet in terms of luxury and cabin flexibility with the ability to accommodate high-end VIP seats, custom cabinetry, galleys, and a  lavatory.
