The race to capture the corporate twin-engine helicopter market began in earnest in the 1970s. In 1979, Sikorsky introduced the S-76, which quickly established itself as the gold standard within the niche. It has sold more than 850 copies and remains in production today, with virtually the same airframe it brought to market in 1979.
One reason for its enduring popularity is that few competing helicopters convey as much elegance. Buyers also appreciate its futuristic styling, roomy 204-cubic-foot cabin, speed, and solid all-weather capabilities.
