Description: Sikorsky's S-76 is a twin-engine multi-role helicopter developed for the commercial market. It has been designed for corporate, offshore oil, hospital, search and rescue (SAR), airline and government operators. It was made of composite materials to avoid corrosion effects while achieving a light and string airframe. S-76 features ease of maintenance and fuel economy. A dual digital autopilot, integrated avionics, all-glass cockpit and flight management system are among the S-76 family characteristics.

The S-76 helicopters offer enhanced maneuverability thanks to its advanced rotor design and two Turbomeca Arriel 2S1 engines. The same design gives the S-76 aircraft low vibration and improved comfort over its predecessors. As of May 2005, S-76C+ is the production model for the S-76 helicopter. S76C+ combines rugged S-76B airframe with Arriel 2S1 engines while retaining long range cruise of S-76C model. To date, more than 575 S-76 helicopters have been built for 192 operators in 44 countries around the globe.

The S-76C++ is a further S-76C variant featuring improved engines, advanced avionics and a new cabin for VIP transport. Turbomeca Arriel 2S2 engines with Full Authority Digital Electronic Control (FADEC) have been selected to power this helicopter. More powerful engines will allow to increase the take-off weight by 450-lb. In addition, a new gearbox and other improvements will make the S-76C++ the quietest helicopter with the lower noise levels cabin in the S-76 class. On 3 January 2006, Sikorsky Aircraft announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) awarded S-76C++ helicopter type certification. As of January 2006 Sikorsky has logged over 60 firm orders for S-76C++ aircraft.
