Sikorsky Aerospace Services (SAS) has received an order from the U.S. State Department for another pair of modified S-61s. The utility helicopters will be used for drug interdiction efforts in Afghanistan. Sikorsky signed an IDIQ contract with the State Department in early 2010 covering up to 110 S-61s, ordering 17 total through early November. (From December 2010 Rotorcraft Report)
