The delivery was announced at Airshow China, and is the first of two S-92s on order for COHC resulting from a June 2013 agreement. With the first delivery, Sikorsky is now the only Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to have helicopters in service for all three major offshore oil providers in China. The second S-92 on order for COHC is scheduled for a March 2015 delivery, Sikorsky said.
