The Sikorsky S-92 Rises Luxuriously

Executive Transporter: Riding in limos certainly has its perks. What could be better than being chauffeured to and fro with minimal distractions and maximum pampering? How about being flown in a Sikorsky S-92 luxury helicopter? Aside from the obvious prestige that accompanies such a mode of transportation, there are significant advantages to ponder. All trips, especially airport jaunts or midrange-distance treks, are less time-consuming, and riding in a helicopter also elevates a mundane task to an extraordinary event. The ride in this aircraft is not like flying in the helicopter used by local TV stations doing the morning-traffic reports. Even with just standard equipment, the S-92 offers luxury features akin to those experienced in private jets, while offering the flexibility of a helicopter. Toss in a few of the optional add-ons and it is dreamy.

The interior, which features supple leather and exotic wood trim throughout the 20-foot cabin, can be customized. The standard seating options are for nine and 10 passengers, respectively. Smooth takeoffs, flights and landings are ensured with special soundproofing, energy-absorbing seats, active-vibration suppressors, and extra-absorbent landing equipment. A six-foot-plus ceiling enables passengers to move about the cabin freely.

The S-92 has received awards from the National Aeronautic Association, the Collier Trophy, and the American Helicopter Society's Howard Hughes Award. It is the first helicopter to be certified by the FAA/JAA Part 29 standards. It is certified to fly in known icing conditions and has icing protection for the engine inlets, the windshield and the air data system. The Rockwell Collins Avionics Management System coupled with the 24/7 customer service makes the Sikorsky S-92 the safest helicopter in its class.
