Since 1977, more than 850 S-76® aircraft have been delivered world-wide. We were proud to announce at this year’s HAI Heli-Expo that the fleet has amassed more than 7 million total fleet flight hours, while continuing its legacy of safety and reliability. The 40-year anniversary of the S-76’s first flight was celebrated on March 13, 2017.
The Offshore mission accounts for 65 percent of the total flight hours accumulated fleet-wide to date. More than 10 percent of the fleet's flight hours have been flown in the critical life-saving missions of Search and Rescue and Helicopter Air Ambulance transportation. The S-76 is well-known for its work in VIP transportation and utility work. Today, it continues dependable service for all of these mission segments.
More than 130 customers operate S-76 helicopters in a Corporate or VIP role. Ten countries rely on the S-76 for the Head of State mission.
Sikorsky is proud of the S-76 fleet’s legacy. With more than 7 million hours of service, we are committed to supporting the platform and to continuous product improvements.

Here's How the S-76D™ Stands Out
Introduced in 1977, the S-76 series has had a long legacy of supporting our customers with reliability and comfort.

Earlier versions of the S-76 helicopter include The S-76ATM and S-76A+TM helicopters (307 built), S-76BTM helicopter (103 built) and S-76CTM , S-76C+TM helicopters (191 built), and S-76C++TMhelicopters (214 built).
