Sikorsky delivers two helicopters to Zhuhai

Sikorsky has delivered an S-76 and S-92
to China Southern Airlines’ Zhuhai Helicopter Branch company with a third
delivery to occur next week, to support the offshore oil operations in the South China Sea by Zhuhai’s customers.

The delivery of the new aircraft brings the total of Sikorsky helicopters in
the Zhuhai Helicopter Branch fleet to 16 aircraft: 13 S-76 and three S-92
helicopters. Zhuhai Helicopter Branch operates the largest S-76 helicopter
fleet in China and Asia.

“Sikorsky Aircraft is proud to see the rapid growth of Zhuhai, and to have
such a loyal customer operating an exclusive Sikorsky fleet for so many years.
The mutual trust and support that our two companies have developed have
contributed to a better understanding in the region of Sikorsky products as
well as the training and maintenance capabilities we offer,” said Shane
Eddy, vice president, Global Supply Chain. “Together, our joint efforts
are on a path to contribute in a significant way to the future development of
the South Sea China offshore oil industry, and Sikorsky is proud to play a role
in that potential success.”
