Sikorsky has received Canadian certification for the expanded gross weight capability option for the S-92 helicopter, the company announced on 24 April.

The option increases the maximum take-off weight of the helicopter from 26,500 to 27,700lbs, allowing operators to carry an additional 1,200lbs of payload.

This capability was first certified by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in 2015. The FAA has also provided certification of a modification to permit the operation of fielded S-92 helicopters at up to 27,700lbs (12,564kg).

Sikorsky expects to obtain European Aviation Safety Agency validation of these capabilities later in 2018.
