About the Bell Sikorsky SR76

More than 10 percent of the fleet’s flight hours have been flown in the critical life-saving missions of Search and Rescue and Helicopter Air Ambulance transportation. The S-76 is well-known for its work in VIP transportation and utility work. Today, it continues dependable service for all of these mission segments.
More than 178 customers operate S-76 helicopters in a Corporate or VIP role. Ten countries rely on the S-76 for the Head of State mission.
Sikorsky is proud of the S-76 fleet’s legacy. With more than 7.5 million hours of safe, successful flight, we are committed to supporting the platform and to continuous product improvements.
