The S-76 helicopter's been in continuous production for over 42 years. At least once a decade, Sikorsky engineers update the helicopter with a newer engine and/or avionics to keep it competitive. Over its lifetime, the S-76 has been powered by various engine families to enhance performance, range and reliability. The S-76 delivers a whole lot more performance, less noise and a better cockpit than the S-76C. Its new engine and rotor system performs better overall, including with higher payloads under Cat A operating conditions. A platform with more than eight million trusted and supported flight hours, the S-76 answers the call for these varied mission segments.
