S-92 helicopters, the cabins of which will soon be manufactured by Tata Advanced Systems in India, perform a variety of missions including search and rescue off the U.K. coast, and Head of State transport for the leaders of several nations.
The Tata Group and Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. signed an agreement for Tata Advanced Systems Ltd. (TASL) to manufacture Sikorsky S-92 helicopter cabins in India. The first cabin is scheduled for delivery in late 2010 from a greenfield facility that TASL will construct at Hyderabad in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The agreement marks the first for the manufacture of Sikorsky products in India. The S-92 helicopter is the first in its class certified by the U.S. FAA to the most rigorous standards and is also certified to the most stringent safety standards of the European Aviation Safety Agency. Almost 100 S-92 helicopters have been produced to date, and the worldwide operating fleet has accumulated more than 150,000 flight hours.
