Sikorsky has finished production on an S-92 for CHC Helicopter. CHC will operate the search and rescue (SAR) dedicated helicopter for the Irish Coast Guard. The S-92 will replace the Coast Guard’s S-61, which has been in service for around 20 years. The S-92 will be stationed in Shannon, Ireland. CHC supplies a fleet of six S-61s on behalf of the Irish Coast Guard. The S-92 will serve offshore islands and provide SAR coverage from Cork to Galway.
