HeliHub.com editor note – The S76B in photo in the Defense News article is registered N760PV. Seven Six Zero Papa Victor. Sikorsky hopes we all read this as Seven Six Oscar Papa Victor, but FAA rules do not allow three alphabetic characters. Oscar Papa Victor = OPV = Optionally Piloted Vehicle. Sikorsky requested this registration on 3rd October 2012 (it was previously N7642S), although it was not formally approved by the FAA until 3rd January 2013.
