Total Number Of SKYe SH09 Helicopters On The Books Stands At
After being introduced last year, Marenco Swisshelicopter Ltd.
confirms that it took 23 orders for its SKYe SH09 at Heli-Expo held
in Houston. The company says it now has firm orders for 34 aircraft
on the books.
With these orders, the SKYe SH09 helicopter will join the fleets
of commercial and private operators throughout the world. The
variety of missions of these operators is a great demonstration of
the helicopter’s adaptability and a confirmation of the
efficiency of modern design.
The helicopter will offer full versatility to all single-engine
operators, whether flying passengers in shuttle, in sightseeing, in
ViP configuration or whether flying utility and safety operations.
Martin Stucki, CEO of MSH expressed “We are very proud to
have been selected internationally by professional renowned
operators.” He added: “We are also very motivated that
the largest share of our orders is coming from US
The SKYe SH09 helo is rated for a MTOW of 5,842 lbs. The company
says it offers exceptional hot and high performance, a flexible
engine concept and a low noise signature thanks to the newly
developed dynamic assemblies and shrouded tail-rotor. The aircraft
has a published cruise speed of 140 knots and a range in excess of
430 nautical miles with standard fuel tanks.
The modularity of the cabin makes the most of the flat floor and
the unique high ceiling concept, offering multiple seating
arrangements of 1 Pilot and up to 7 passengers, all with individual
crashworthy seats. The rear access to the cabin is facilitated by
the large clamshell doors; addressing the passenger transport and
emergency evacuation roles of the helicopter. (Image provided by
