Sikorsky partnered with both Keystone Helicopter Corporation, a principal completion center for Sikorsky S-76 helicopters, and Heritage Aviation who designed the new interior.
"Keystone's custom completion capabilities and the caliber of their workmanship, paired with Heritage's luxurious new design will result in an overall product that we think will more than please our customers as well as set a new standard of comfort and luxury," said Jeff Pino, Sikorsky's Senior Vice President of Marketing and Commercial Programs.
The new S76-C++ VIP interior offers an updated five-person seating arrangement with a three-person aft-facing leather bench and two forward facing captain's chairs. The interior also features an improved soundproofing system that utilizes Keystone's SILENCER in addition to the gearbox noise reduction provided by Sikorsky's Quite Zoneä technology, both of which will provide new standards in customer comfort.
