The milestone comes just after five years since AERO Vodochody delivered the first S-76 airframe in January 2001 - eight months after signing the contract.
"AERO's quality and schedule performance have been superlative," said Eric Hansen, S-76 program manager for Sikorsky. "We look forward to extending this partnership and the strength it provides to the continued success of the S-76 program."
"AERO Vodochody takes pride in keeping pace with Sikorsky's production requirements and will continue to deliver world-class airframes that meet the highest standards for performance in a timely fashion," said AERO President Petr Klimes.
The S-76® is a multi-mission medium helicopter used in a variety of roles including offshore oil, executive transport, and airline.
