Sikorsky Global Helicopters Delivers Another S-300CTM Helicopter to All American Helicopters
The new S-300C helicopter will join the three Sikorsky helicopters already in operation at All American Helicopters and will be used exclusively for flight training. It is the second helicopter the company has purchased from Sikorsky Global Helicopters in the past year.
The S-300C helicopter is versatile in a broad range of operations and combines high useful-load capabilities with precise maneuverability. Gene LaCoste, founder and president of All American Helicopters, said the S-300C aircraft offers the durability All American Helicopters requires to meet students' needs.
"I look for safety, reliability and value when purchasing an aircraft," LaCoste said. "The helicopters Sikorsky Global Helicopters produces provide all these attributes."
Founded in November 2007, All American Helicopters focuses primarily on training domestic and international professional pilots. The company also offers vocational training to injured veterans. The flight training curriculum has received approval from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs and the Texas Veterans Commission.
The S-300CTM helicopter operates throughout the world in many demanding roles including law enforcement and military patrol, power line/pipeline patrol, commercial and military flight training, ranching, external load operations, animal surveys, aerial photography and personal transportation. The cockpit size, load capacity, performance characteristics, robust design and low direct operating costs make the S-300CTM a leader in its class.
Sikorsky Global Helicopters, a Sikorsky company, produces the S-76®, S-92®, and H-92TM helicopters as well as the S-300CTM, S-300CBiTM, S-333TM, and S-434TM light helicopters. Its business also includes all operations of Keystone Helicopter Corp. and Associated Aircraft Group (AAG).
