  STRATFORD, Connecticut - Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation announced today that Xavier Enterprises has signed deposit agreements for two S-76® helicopters scheduled for delivery in 2009. Xavier Enterprises is based in Palm Springs Calif., and, through its relationship with Aircraft Services Group (ASG) based in Ramsey, N.J., provides an entire range of helicopter services to its customers.

ASG currently operates one Sikorsky S76BT helicopter on behalf of Xavier for executive transport and multi-mission use. Both new S-76D aircraft will be managed by ASG. ASG also manages two S-92TM helicopters for customers in the United States and Europe.

"We are looking forward to continuing our long-standing relationship with the Sikorsky product line. The D model is perfectly suited for Xavier's hot and high operating environment," said Aircraft Services Group, Inc.'s Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Parker.

The launch of the S-76D model was first announced in February 2005 as a series of engine, air vehicle, interior and avionics upgrades that ensure that the venerable S-76 product line will remain best-in-class in the corporate VIP, offshore oil, airline, EMS/ search-and-rescue and law enforcement segments.

Product improvements on the S-76D include new composite main rotor blades, new quiet tail rotor, rotorcraft icing protection system (RIPS), an all new Thales cockpit, and a new Pratt & Whitney Canada PW210 engine.
