Saudi Ministry of Interior takes delivery of Sikorsky's first pair of S434 helicopters

Posted 16 December 2009 · Add Comment

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Interior has taken delivery of the first two of nine aircraft for its Light Helicopters fleet.

The helicopters are the S-434TM from Sikorsky. The MOI deliveries are the first for the S-434 helicopter.

“With these deliveries, the S-434 helicopter turns a page in its early history,” said David Horton, General Manager of Sikorsky Global Helicopters, Light Helicopter Division. “We are proud to begin this relationship with the MOI and look forward to the further growth of this product line.”  

The S-434 helicopters were manufactured at Sikorsky Global Helicopters Light Helicopter Division in Horseheads, New York.  

In addition to the S-434 helicopters, Sikorsky Global Helicopters is providing a complete logistical support package including spare parts, special tools, and training for pilots and mechanics. In-country support personnel will include a technical representative and instructor pilot.  

The S-434 single turbine is a new version of the S-333TM helicopter and incorporates many of the latest design and performance technologies developed with respect to light helicopters. Its predecessor operates throughout the world in many demanding missions including law enforcement patrol, commercial and military flight training, power line/pipeline patrol, personal use, and light utility operations.  

Inherited advantages of the S-333 helicopter design ensure that benefits such as excellent visibility, superior flight handling characteristics, and exceptional safety and crashworthiness features are retained on the S-434 helicopter.
