March 5, 2013, Las Vegas, Nv. - Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. today recognized its customer, National Helicopter Services Limited of Trinidad & Tobago, for its longtime operation of S-76 helicopters over a 35-year relationship.
Sikorsky celebrated the customer during an event at its booth at the Heli-Expo industry show in Las Vegas, Nev.
“NHSL is one of Sikorsky’s longest tenured and most faithful operators of S-76 aircraft,” said Carey Bond, President of Sikorsky Global Helicopters. “They have really put the S-76 helicopter to work and helped to build the strong legacy of solid performance by our medium helicopter through the years. Today, we salute their commitment to our relationship with them, and offer our congratulations on their more than 100,000 flight hours with S-76 aircraft through the years.”
Joshey Mahabir, General Manager for NHSL, said his company’s fleet of eight S-76 helicopters has steadily served customers in Trinidad, a region that is rich with oil and gas reserves. “NHSL values, above all else, the safety features of the S-76 platform, as well as the high reliability of this aircraft. Such a strong record ensures the maximum operational availability, which is so crucial to the business activities of our customers.”
