Yunnan Jingchen Group recently received Chinese government approval to establish a general aviation company named the Ruili Helicopter Group. The new S-92 helicopter will become the second operated by Jingchen, after the first was ordered in 2012 and delivered in June 2013. 

The newly ordered S-92 helicopter is scheduled for delivery in November 2015.

"Jingchen is a new and already growing customer. We are excited to be able to support their expansion and are working closely to help ensure a smooth start to their operations by providing initial technical support on site," said Ed Beyer, Vice President of Sikorsky Global Helicopters, the commercial aircraft business of Sikorsky Aircraft.

The multi-mission S-92 helicopter incorporates numerous safety features, including a flaw-tolerant design. The aircraft was certified to FAA/EASA harmonized Part 29 requirements, as amended through Amendment 47, and remains the only aircraft certified to this rigorous airworthiness standard without exception or waiver.

Sikorsky will deliver its 200 th S-92 helicopter this year. The global fleet is currently approaching 590,000 flight hours. Among the missions performed by the S-92 helicopter are offshore oil worker transportation, Head of State transport, search and rescue operations, and airline service.

Jingcheng also purchased a new Sikorsky S-76D helicopter in September 2012 for delivery in December 2013.

The S-76D helicopter received FAA certification in 2012 and is the latest in the family of popular Sikorsky's S-76 ® helicopters. More than 800 S-76 helicopters in the global fleet have accumulated 6.2 million flight hours during three decades of operation.

Designed for safety, reliability and efficiency, the S-76D helicopter features all-composite, flaw-tolerant main rotor blades; a fully integrated THALES glass cockpit; health and usage monitoring system; active vibration control; and powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada PW210S engines, which deliver the best in class power-to-weight ratio and fuel burn with excellent payload and range benefits.

Sikorsky Aircraft, based in Stratford, Conn., is a world leader in helicopter design, manufacture and service. United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Conn., provides a broad range of high technology products and support services to the aerospace and building systems industries.
