Tomorrow marks the 41st anniversary of the first flight of the Sikorsky S-76® Helicopter, Lockheed Martin

Since 1977, more than 875 S-76® aircraft have been delivered world-wide. In 2017, the fleet amassed more than 7 million total fleet flight hours, while continuing its legacy of safety and reliability. The 40-year anniversary of the S-76’s first flight was celebrated on past March 13, 2017.
The Offshore mission accounts for 65 percent of the total flight hours accumulated fleet-wide to date. More than 10 percent of the fleet's flight hours have been flown in the critical life-saving missions of Search and Rescue and Helicopter Air Ambulance transportation. The S-76 is well-known for its work in VIP transportation and utility work. Today, it continues dependable service for all of these mission segments.
More than 130 customers operate S-76 helicopters in a Corporate or VIP role.  Ten countries rely on the S-76 for the Head of State mission.
Sikorsky is proud of the S-76 fleet’s legacy. With more than 7 million hours of service, we are committed to supporting the platform and to continuous product improvements.
