Bonjour à tous,

Quelques nouvelles de Sikorsky et de ses programmes.

Sikorsky Aircraft Unveils Enhancements for S-92(R) Helicopter and Updates Progress of S-76D(TM) Helicopter Program

DUXFORD, England, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Increased maximum gross weight capability and advancements in automation for offshore navigation are among the enhancements Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. has planned in the near future for its S-92® helicopter, the company announced today at the biannual Helitech exhibition. Sikorsky Aircraft is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp.
Marc Poland, Vice President of Sikorsky Global Helicopters, delivered a press briefing to outline Sikorsky's plans for its commercial helicopter programs, which include the S-434(TM), S-300C(TM), S-92, H-92(TM) and S-76® helicopters.

Among the key improvements being planned for the S-92 helicopter are:

  • Increased maximum gross weight from 26,500 pounds to above 27,000 pounds
  • Improvements to the durability of the main gear box
  • Limited icing certification
  • A fully coupled and automated approach capability that will allow pilots to approach offshore platforms with greater safety and lower minimums.

"Sikorsky remains committed to improving reliability and operability, and these enhancements for the S-92 helicopter are the result of that commitment," Poland said. "We continue to grow our products with a focus on customer satisfaction, safety and dedication to the innovative philosophy that has been the hallmark of Sikorsky Aircraft."
Poland said further improvements to the Rotor Ice Protection System have been deployed and are the result of steady work on the system since the 2009 icing season. "We have worked hard to significantly improve the reliability and maintainability of all RIPS components and sub-systems," he said.
Sikorsky's S-76D helicopter, the next generation model in the S-76 helicopter series, also is continuing its flight envelope expansion, with more than 40 flight hours logged. Among the S-76D helicopter's features are all-composite, flaw-tolerant main rotor blades; an advanced Thales avionics system and autopilot; dual speed rotor with active vibration control; powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada 210S engines; a quiet mode for enhanced public acceptance; and an optional Rotor Ice Protection System (RIPS) for all-weather capability. The S-76D helicopter also will offer an increase in useful load and extended range performance versus the S-76C (TM) and S-76C (TM) aircraft currently fielded.
Other highlights noted by Poland:

  • The S-76D prototype D1 is in active flight test with prototype D2 in final check-out, preparing for flight in October. Build-up of a third prototype is under way at Sikorsky Global Helicopters' Coatesville, Penn., facility, with anticipated delivery to the flight test center in Q4.
  • The S-434 helicopter produced by the Light Helicopter division of Sikorsky Global Helicopters is flying and pursuing FAA certification
  • The first production CH-148 helicopter, being developed for Canada's Maritime Helicopter Program, is flying and scheduled to begin sea trials later this year

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

http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/utc-considers-tax-free-spinoff-for-sikorsky-410051/

A priori l'avenir de Sikorsky ne passe peut être plus par UTC qui envisage de se séparer de cette branche sous une forme qui reste à définir

Je comprends l'idée d'UTC, mais elle est loin d'être facile à réaliser ...

Boeing Co., Airbus Group NV and Lockheed Martin Corp. are among the companies exploring bids for Sikorsky or, alternatively, for a minority stake, some of the people said. Bids are due later this month.

“As previously announced, UTC is exploring strategic alternatives for Sikorsky, which could include a sale or spinoff,” United Technologies spokesman John Moran said. “We continue to expect the evaluation will be completed by midyear.”

Paul a écrit:Et Lockheed fait déjà équipe avec Sikorsky sur le S-97 (X2).

Faux, Lockheed fait équipe avec Bell (V-280) sur cet appel d'offres, il y a donc un conflit d'intérêt. C'est Boeing qui est avec Sikorsky

Tu te contredis ?
Ok pour le conflit d'intérêt
Des cartes à rebattre donc sur quelques programmes (ou des mécanismes type firewall pour poursuivre la coopération sous la forme actuelle)
