Sikorsky Global Helicopters delivers first two S-434(TM) helicopters

Sikorsky Global Helicopters, a business unit of Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., today announced that its Light Helicopters Division has delivered the first two S-434(TM) helicopters to the Ministry of Interior, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (MOI). Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX) .

The two aircraft inaugurate the Saudi MOI light helicopter fleet, which will eventually total nine aircraft. The MOI deliveries are the first for the S-434 helicopter.

"With these deliveries, the S-434 helicopter turns a page in its early history," said David Horton, General Manager of Sikorsky Global Helicopters, Light Helicopter Division. "We are proud to begin this relationship with the MOI and look forward to the further growth of this product line."

The S-434 helicopters were manufactured at Sikorsky Global Helicopters, Light Helicopter Division in Horseheads, N.Y.

In addition to the S-434 helicopters, Sikorsky Global Helicopters is providing a complete logistical support package including spare parts, special tools, and training for pilots and mechanics. In-country support personnel will include a technical representative and instructor pilot.

The S-434 helicopter model is a new version of the S-333(TM) helicopter and incorporates many of the latest design and performance technologies developed with respect to light helicopters.

The S-333 helicopter operates throughout the world in many demanding missions including law enforcement patrol, commercial and military flight training, power line/pipeline patrol, personal use, and light utility operations.

Inherited advantages of the S-333 helicopter design ensure that benefits such as excellent visibility, superior flight handling characteristics, and exceptional safety and crashworthiness features are retained on the S-434 helicopter. These benefits, combined with ease of maintenance and reliability, make the new S-434 helicopter an exceptional-value single-turbine helicopter.
