Sikorsky S-64 Aircrane
This virtual S-64 Aircrane is a reproduction of what was originally the Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane, now known as the Erickson S-64 Aircrane. It is a heavy-lift helicopter that employs two 4,050 shaft horsepower Pratt & Whitney JFTD12A engines. A single-point hoist system can be used with loads up to 20,000 pounds static (15,000 pounds for hydraulic raising/lower). Hard points on the sides can be used to attach various mission-specific pods. The first S-64 prototype was flown on May 9, 1962. The type certificate and manufacturing rights were later purchased by Erickson in 1992. This virtual S-64 has four seating positions for pilot, co-pilot, aft pilot (winch operator) and a jump seat.
