Zhuhai Helicopter orders another two Sikorsky S92s

Sikorsky and the Zhuhai Helicopter Company announced a new contract at Airshow China 2012 for two Sikorsky S-92 helicopters.

Zhuhai Helicopter Company (ZHC), a fully-owned subsidiary of China Southern Airlines, is a leading provider of offshore helicopter service in China, serving both Chinese and Western oil companies.

After deliveries in 2013, ZHC will operate five S-92 and 12 S-76 helicopters of various models, making it the largest Sikorsky commercial fleet operator in Asia.

“We deeply appreciate that our longtime customer in China, Zhuhai, continues to have an unfailing loyalty to our products and service, and we look forward to expanding this cooperation to aircraft maintenance service, personnel training, and material distribution,” said Ed Beyer, vice president of Sikorsky Global Helicopters. “The safety and efficiency of these aircraft, combined with solid support, have contributed to the ongoing trend of Sikorsky helicopters flying into China, our fastest-growing market in the world.”

Rong Weiguo, acting president of ZHC, added: “Zhuhai Helicopter Company is experiencing continued growth. As the oldest operator of Sikorsky helicopters in China, Zhuhai looks forward to the opportunities to further develop its relationship with Sikorsky in the future.”
