Infographic shines the spotlight on the Sikorsky S-92 helicopter and was released to coincide with WinAir’s attendance at the HAI Heli-Expo
The Essential Guide to the Sikorsky S-92 Helicopter Infographic showcases features and statistical information relating the the S-92 helicopter. It was created using information primarily obtained from Wikipedia’s “Sikorsky S-92” article and Lockheed Martin‘s “Sikorsky S-92 Multi-Mission Helicopter” brochure. The image highlights vital statistics, general characteristics, and key performance data associated with the aircraft.
The S-92 is a medium-lift/utility helicopter manufactured by Sikorsky Aircraft. It completed its maiden voyage on December 23, 1998, and has been in production since that year. The aircraft is used to fulfill a variety of roles within the civil and military sphere—from executive transport, to search and rescue (SAR) missions, naval operations, boarder patrol, offshore oil and gas industry support, and airline services. In addition, the S-92 is the helicopter of choice for a number of heads of state, including the President of the United State of America, who’s S-92, commonly referred to as “Marine One” is considered a safe and logistically sound alternative to presidential motorcades.
