November 4: The British Royal Family has taken delivery of a brand new Sikorsky S-76C++ VIP helicopter.

Captain Christopher Pittaway, Manager and Chief Pilot of The Queen’s Helicopter Flight, said “It most closely meets the mission requirements by providing a quiet and comfortable cabin environment, low carbon footprint and best value for money. We have enjoyed excellent product support from Sikorsky over many years and I look forward to a continued relationship."

The S-76C++ has upgraded Turbomeca Arriel 2S2 engines and gearbox technology that reduces interior noise levels, an inlet barrier filter to protect the engine against erosion and environmental contaminants and a new VIP interior.
