Introduced in 1977, the S-76 series has had a long legacy of supporting its customers with
reliability and comfort. Originally built for the rigorous demands of the offshore oil market,
its capabilities fit naturally into other market segments, such as executive transport, SAR,
Airline and helicopter Emergency Medical Services.
Earlier versions of the S-76 helicopter include the S-76A and S-76A helicopters (307 built),
S-76B helicopter (103 built) and S-76C, S-76C+TM helicopters (191 built), and Sikorsky S-76C
helicopters (214 built). These machines, fitted with Turbomeca Arriel 1S1 engines, continue to
be productive assets for operators worldwide and Sikorsky solidly supports them through its
Sikorsky Aerospace Services division.
