Milestone signs for three S-92s

Sikorsky Aircraft has announced that Milestone Aviation Group has signed a contract to purchase three S-92 helicopters.

“In a very short time, Milestone Aviation has become one of the pre-eminent helicopter lessors and an important and highly valued customer,” said Bob Kokorda, Sikorsky sales and marketing
vice president. “We deeply appreciate their business, and look forward to growing our relationship.”

The three aircraft join an inventory of seven S-76C++ helicopters and four additional S-92 aircraft Milestone has purchased since December of 2010.

The new aircraft will serve a variety of roles with operators worldwide, such as transporting workers to offshore oil and gas platforms, VIP transport including Head of State, air
ambulance, search and rescue, and civil defense.

“Our most recent purchase is further testament to the quality of the Sikorsky product line,” said Richard Santulli, chairman of Milestone. “Demand for these machines is
extraordinary, and they will quickly enter the field performing mission critical or utility work with operators in the oil and gas, EMS or search and rescue sectors.

Sikorsky plans to deliver the first two S-92 aircraft during the latter part of 2012; and the third aircraft in early 2013.
