Sikorsky and Lider Sign for One S-92 Helicopter

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. and Líder Taxi Aéreo S.A. Air Brasil today announced the signing of a contract for one S-92® aircraft in a ceremony held at NBAA. This contract continues the 30-year relationship between the companies. Sikorsky is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

Líder will operate the aircraft in Brazil in support of offshore oil operations. Líder has been operating S-92 helicopters in Brazil for more than a year and was the first operator to begin flying that model in the region. This order brings their total S-92 fleet to four aircraft.

Líder operates more than 40 Sikorsky helicopters – both S-76® and S-92 helicopters – in support of offshore oil operations in Brazil. Lider has been flying Sikorsky products, beginning with the S-58T™ helicopter, since the 1970s.
