First CHC S-92 Enters into Revenue Service in the North Sea

Norway, May 23, 2005 - CHC Helikopter Service's first S-92 entered revenue service today under contract with Norsk Hydro, one of Norway's major oil companies.

Prior to entering into service, the aircraft underwent modifications including the installment of passenger entertainment systems as well as additional communications equipment at the CHC maintenance facilities in Stavanger, Norway.

This S-92 helicopter is part of an aircraft order that Sikorsky signed with CHC back in the spring of 2004. This is the first of two S-92 helicopters that will be owned by CHC and operated under contract with Norsk Hydro.

The second S-92, also under contract with Norsk Hydro, was delivered in April and is scheduled to enter into revenue service later this month.

CHC also has a contract with Statoil for one not yet delivered S-92 helicopter that will be operating out of Kristansund, Norway. This aircraft is scheduled to become operational this summer.

Sikorsky anticipates more S-92 helicopters will begin offshore operations in the North Sea this year. The S-92 helicopter is the first in the world certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency/ Joint Aviation Authorities (EASA/JAA) to the latest and most rigorous safety standards. The S-92 was also the first helicopter certified by the FAA to FAR Part 29 Transport Rotorcraft, Amendment 47, the latest U.S. safety regulations, which mirror the European standards.
