The S-76D helicopter features all composite main rotor blades and two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW210S engines with dual FADEC controls.

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. entered into agreements to sell two S-76D helicopters to PT Travira Air, a Jakarta, Indonesia-based char-ter airline company. The purchase of the two S-76D aircraft represents the latest addition to the company's fleet but also represents the launching of the S-76D helicopter in Southeast Asia. Sikorsky expects to deliver the S-76D helicopters in 2015. The helicopters will be used in part of an offshore oil configuration project with which PT Travira Air is associated. The company currently has a fleet of eight S-76 aircraft.
