S-92 helicopter.


Rig Approach is a fi rst of its kind functionality on the S-92 helicopter that provides helicopter operators with an automated approach to off shore rigs and platforms. Rig Approach is available as an option on the S-92 helicopter, providing a fully coupled and automated approach capability with a higher safety margin than currently is available with any other off shore approach procedure. The feature can be retrofi tted to aircraft already in operation.


Sikorsky developed Rig Approach in close collaboration with PHI, Inc., an important Sikorsky customer that operates S-92 and S-76 helicopters in the Gulf of Mexico, providing transportation to off shore oil workers to and from the platforms there. PHI Inc. fl ew the fi rst operational Rig Approach fl ight in November 2013.


Reducing cockpit workload is a key safety feature that benefi ts the pilots and passengers, especially under challenging weather and operating conditions,” said Audrey Brady, director of S-92 programs for Sikorsky Commercial Systems & Services. “With the Transport Canada certifi cation of Rig Approach, we are excited about supplying our Canadian customers with this very important functionality to help improve safety in operations.”
