Introducing the Sikorsky S76
Please note that the Sikorsky S76 is no longer part of the GB Helicopters fleet. Click Here to see our current fleet of helicopters that are available.
We are extremely excited to announce the arrival of a new aircraft to our fleet of luxury twin engine aircraft. The Sikorsky S76 C++, previously owned by Capital Air Services has become the first aircraft within the GB Helicopters AOC to fall under the Medium sized helicopter category.
With the ability to cover all-year round social and sporting events as well as business and personal charter, our helicopter services shows constantly positive development and the progression to provide a larger aircraft seemed only natural.
Offering an exceptional degree of performance, speed and capacity. The S76 is an all-round aircraft that can provide an amplified level of comfort to our clientele. With the new addition, growing staff numbers and more variety, we can expand further into the HNWI & UHNWI markets who prefer the more spacious aircraft; of which the S76 is deemed a favourite, specifically among VVIPs, royalty and dignitaries.
And why wouldn’t it? Boasting an array of thoughtfully crafted interior upgrades including a beautiful mahogany coffee and refreshment station. The aircraft accommodates up to 6 passengers in the spacious private rear cabin (plus, an additional passenger can also sit in the front alongside the pilot). Swiveling rear-facing seats provide a warm social environment and eases passengers mobility for the coffee and refreshment station. Bose aviation headsets, superior sound proofed paneling teamed with luxury leather continue to provide a quiet and comforting environment.
The S76 C++ features twin turboshaft engines, four-bladed main and tail rotors and retractable landing gear. Boasting the latest avionics, a cruise speed of 155KTS and a range of 360NM the Sikorsky manufactured in 2008 sets an unrivaled standard of excellence.
