Earlier this week,
Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation announced that Xavier Aviation has
signed deposit agreements for two S-76D helicopters scheduled for
delivery in 2009. Xavier Aviation is based in Palm Springs FL and
-- through its relationship with Aircraft Services Group (ASG)
based in Ramsey, NJ -- provides an entire range of helicopter
services to its customers.
ASG currently operates one Sikorsky S76B helicopter on behalf of
Xavier for executive transport and multi-mission use. Both new
S-76D aircraft will be managed by ASG. ASG also manages two
S-92(TM) helicopters for customers in the United States and
"We are looking forward to continuing our long-standing
relationship with the Sikorsky product line. The D model is
perfectly suited for Xavier's hot and high operating environment,"
said Aircraft Services Group, Inc.'s Chief Operating Officer
The launch of the S-76D model was first announced in February
2005 as a series of engine, air vehicle, interior and avionics
upgrades that ensure that the venerable S-76 product line will
remain best-in-class in the corporate VIP, offshore oil, airline,
EMS/ search-and-rescue and law enforcement segments.
Product improvements on the S-76D include new composite main
rotor blades, new quiet tail rotor, rotorcraft icing protection
system (RIPS), an all new Thales cockpit, and a new Pratt &
Whitney Canada PW210 engine.
