Could be the cost?

While the S-76D is a very nice upgrade to the S-76 family, but ITS EXPENSIVE.

From a current S-76D operator: "between $15-16M fitted out cost"

That's a lot of money for a twin bench seat cabin aircraft that can seat 8 pax.

For that money I could get an offshore AW139 and a couple million change, or a corporate 139 or an EMS 139 with custom interior and anti-ice!

Are you sure about that cost for a 76D? Sounds a bit high.

Ouch. I hope it has a very very nice VIP interior for that price!

That number is in line with data from a well-known database suggesting that base 76D is IRO $1.5 mil above the 139.

Sikorsky is desperate to sell the D. Wait until they have unsold white tails at the end of the year when Hartford comes calling for cash, a fleet buyer will get them for $10m each. But, still way too much money for what it offers, especially when long term lease deals on 139s can be had at very attractive rates.

And then goes behind the big blue wall and tells suppliers to slash deliveries.

Perhaps the microphone cut out and missed the end of his sentence, "... in 2017."

Anyone care to wager how long it would take the new owners to shutdown the 76 line should United Tech decide to spinoff Sikorsky???

Anyone know how many of these ac Sk have sold? I heard 24 somewhere but that sounds low. Equally I hear it's not that good so maybe that's right? Anyone?

The offshore industry is driving to heavy expensive options, so the weight and price of all helicopters goes up and payload goes down. The AW139 was blessed with a series of gross weight increases, otherwise a 4700kg aircraft trying to operate at the original 4200 wouldn't have much payload either. The D is in an airframe already maxed out from the original 10,500 lb gross, so payload challenged compared to the C++ or even the A++ (though those aircraft don't have the same bells and whistles). Heavier to mitigate a highly improbable risk isn't safer.

You'd have to really want a D to buy one, 139's are dirt cheap on the market right now.

10,000 lb. when I started on the A model in 1981.
