Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. today announced the delivery of two S-92® helicopters to Bond Helicopters Australia at the 2015 Avalon Airshow.

Bond Helicopters Australia will operate a total of four S-92 helicopters, the first of its kind in this Australian fleet.

Sikorsky will deliver the remaining two S-92 aircraft to Bond Helicopters Australia later this year.

“We are very pleased to work closely with Sikorsky for the delivery of four new S-92 helicopters to enable us to deliver the highest level of customer service to our clients,” said John Boag, Managing Director, Bond Helicopters Australia.

“The S-92 helicopter will be the first of its type for Bond Helicopters and is on show for the first time at the 2015 Avalon Airshow.”

The four-bladed twin-engine helicopter can seat up to 19 passengers with a full cabin width rear ramp.

“Sikorsky is proud to deliver this safe and reliable aircraft to Bond Helicopters Australia,” said Ed Beyer, Vice President, Sikorsky Commercial Systems & Services.

“We look forward to seeing Bond’s successes in Australia with the S-92 helicopter, and thank Bond for its commitment to Sikorsky and our products.”
