Sikorsky S-76 C++

Overview

Th Sikorsky S-76C++ is an American medium-size commercial utility helicopter, manufactured by the Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation. The S-76 features twin turboshaft engines, four-bladed main and tail rotors and retractable landing gear. The S-76 is of conventional configuration, with a four-bladed fully articulated main rotor and a four-bladed anti-torque rotor on the port side of the tailboom. Two turboshaft engines are located above the passenger cabin. In the prototypes and initial production aircraft, these engines were Allison 250-C30s, a new version of the popular Allison 250 engine developed specially for the S-76, with a single-stage centrifugal compressor instead of the multi-stage axial/centrifugal compressor of earlier models of the engine, rated at 650 shp (480 kW) for take-off. These engines are connected to the main rotor by the main gearbox, a three-stage unit with a bull gearas its final stage rather than the planetary gear used by previous generations of Sikorsky helicopters. This arrangement gave 30% fewer parts and lower costs than a more conventional design. The fuselage is of mixed metal and composites construction, with a fiberglass nose and a light alloy honeycomb cabin structure. The semi-monocoque tailboom is also constructed of light alloy. Two pilots (or a pilot and a passenger) sit side-by-side in the cockpit, situated ahead of the cabin, which can accommodate a further 12 passengers in three rows of four, or four to eight passengers in more luxurious executive seating.
