The Sikorsky S-92 helicopter features a cabin with a stand-up height of 6 ft.

The India joint venture established between Tata Advanced Systems and Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. has announced that its S-92 helicopter cabin production in India has become 100% indigenous. The India operation is not only assembling cabins but also producing all parts needed for the assembly, before shipping the cabins to the U.S. for aircraft completion and customer delivery. The S-92 helicopter cabin and more than 5000 associated precision components are made in Hyderabad, India. The Tata Sikorsky India JV also announced that the Hyderabad facility of TASL completed another significant milestone by producing its 50th S-92 helicopter cabin. The TASL facility now has the capacity to produce up to four cabins a month and is responsible for future design modifications.
