Shawn Cornell, general manager for south-east Asia, said: “Sikorsky is tremendously excited to bring the S-76D helicopter to south-east Asia.”
“We are honoured to have a long standing history in the aviation sector here in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand and are strategically focused on expanding our presence in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The S-76D comes from a long standing lineage of proven and trusted helicopters,” added Cornell.
The expansion and need of rotary wing aircraft in the ASEAN region is growing and the S-76D aircraft is poised to fit roles in the offshore oil, VIP, search and rescue and emergency medical services missions.”
