Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. has delivered its fifth S-76C helicopter in India. The aircraft, configured with a VIP cabin, was purchased by a regional company.

"We delivered our first helicopter last year and within a span of just one and a half years, we have completed deliveries of five machines. We hope to continue the upswing in the country," says A.J.S. Walia, managing director for India and South Asia.

Sikorsky's focus on the Indian market has been evident. It has an association with Tata Advanced Systems to produce S-92 cabins, for which manufacturing has already started at the Hyderabad facility. The first cabin is expected to roll out November. Deccan Charters has been appointed as the authorized commercial service center.
