Fig Air, a Toronto-based VIP and corporate helicopter operator, has signed for a Sikorsky S-76D helicopter.  

This sale will result in the first delivery of the Sikorsky S-76D helicopter to a Canadian helicopter operator. Sikorsky is a Lockheed Martin Company.

Charles Bouchard, chief executive for Lockheed Martin Canada and a former Royal Canadian Air Force helicopter pilot, said:

“We are thrilled to be able to provide Fig Air with such a capable solution to meet their VIP service requirements. We welcomed Sikorsky to the Lockheed Martin family a year ago, and it is clear they are uniquely suited to provide a diverse range of helicopter solutions to meet Canada’s commercial and defense markets.”

S-76D helicopter VIP options include a customized interior with seating for five to eight passengers. Uniquely, the S-76D helicopter can hold its rotor system still while running an engine to power the on-board air-conditioning system for safe, comfortable loading and unloading into the pre-cooled cabin during the summer season and hot climates.

Sikorsky has delivered more than 850 S-76 helicopters to customers globally since 1979, contributing daily to nearly 7 million fleet flight hours.
