Third S-92 builds coast guard capability
The Korea Coast Guard has completed 195 rescues and has flown more than 2,700 flight hours since 2014. An increasing fleet of Sikorsky helicopters will ensure its lifesaving activities continue effectively.
S-92s are now active in 28 countries.

The Korea Coast Guard has taken delivery of its third S-92 search and rescue helicopter, with a fourth on track for next year. The expansion of its fleet of the type increases its capability to conduct maritime security, safety and life-saving missions for the people of Korea.

“Our valued partnership with Sikorsky spans nearly a decade,” says Mr. Han Sangchul, senior superintendent and final acceptance test inspection team lead for the Korea Coast Guard. “We look forward to continued success as we grow our fleet of highly-capable search and rescue S-92 aircraft.”

The Korea Coast Guard has completed 195 rescues and has flown more than 2,700 flight hours since 2014. The global fleet of S-92 helicopters recently achieved two million flight hours in a variety of missions including search and rescue, oil and gas transportation and VIP transportation in 28 countries.

“The S-92 gives the Korea Coast Guard a strategic advantage when it comes to saving lives,” says Leon Silva, vice president of Sikorsky Global Commercial and Military Systems. “Every second counts, which is why the agile, all-weather S-92 is mission ready, all the time.”
