Sikorsky’s Coatesville area assembly plant recently celebrated the delivery of a second S-92 helicopter in three years to the South Korean Coast Guard.
Since March 2014, the first aircraft has flown more than 850 flight hours and was instrumental in saving more than 30 lives during search and rescue and emergency medical transport missions, the South Korean Coast Guard said.
Most recently, on June 2, a 50-year-old man was rescued from a ship by the South Korean Coast Guard’s S-92 helicopter. A dispatched crew responded to the distress call, reached the victim, and safely transported him to a hospital for care in just 30 minutes, Sikorsky noted in announcing the second sale. The victim is recovering.
