    PHI expands offshore fleet

    News // September 12, 2003
    Offshore helicopter transportation company Petroleum Helicopters has signed an agreement to purchase two Sikorsky S-92 helicopters, Sikorsky's newest aircraft in the medium-lift helicopter market. The pair of S-92s should enter service in 2004 and support deepwater drilling and production activity in the Gulf of Mexico.

    "PHI is one of the world's top commercial helicopter operators, and one of our most valued customers," said Jeff Pino, Sikorsky's senior vice president for marketing and commercial programmes. "PHI has utilized every commercial helicopter that Sikorsky has produced, from the S-55 in the early 1960s to the S-92 today. We are thrilled with PHI's continued confidence in our aircraft and their willingness to introduce the S-92 into the Gulf of Mexico."
