The S-76 is a new helicopter designed for the commercial market in general, and in particular, is designed to serve the off-shore oil market and meet its requirements; that is to carry 12 passengers and a crew of two on a 400 nautical mile radius mission with flotation equipment and operate IFR Category A. A definite requirement exists for a long range, over water helicopter to transport crews to and from the oil rigs. The S-76 is designed to that mission. All this is to be achieved in a helicopter weighing less than 10,000 lbs.
