The government of Canada selected Sikorsky's H-92 Superhawk alongside the
Maritime Helicopter team to replace H-3 Sea King helicopters in service with the
Canadian armed forces.
The Maritime Helicopter project is worth $3 billion for the acquisition of 28
new built helicopters. Moreover the contractors will furnish 28 H-92 Superhawks
as well as 20 years of logistics support services over a period of 20 years with
first deliveries due in 2008.
Canadian Maritime Helicopter will be multi-mission configured capable of
performing anti-submarine patrols, surveillance and ship-borne duties, search
and rescue support, cargo and personnel transport, and disaster relief support.
General Dynamics Canada and L-3 MAS Canada along with Sikorsky are the team
members responsible for the Maritime Helicopter project. The H-92 was selected
over AgustaWestland EH101 Cormorant and Lockheed-Martin/NH Industries NH90
In addition, Sikorsky and the US government have agreed to build eight UH-60L
helicopters for the Royal Jordanian Air Force. The first aircraft will be
delivered in 2006. This order will bring to 13 the total number of UH-60
helicopters operated by Jordan. These aircraft are meant for VIP transportation,
armed helicopter support, utility, search and rescue, and special operations.
