  • China considers SAR helicopter possibilities

    News | 30 Sep 2003 00:00

    <p>China's ministry of communications has launched a competition for new medium and heavy search and rescue (SAR) helicopters.</p> <p>The government agency invited AgustaWestland, Bell, China Aviation Industry Corp II (AVIC II), Eurocopter, Mil and Sikorsky to give presentations in mid-September. A request for proposals is expected to be issued shortly for three to five helicopters to be acquired early next year.</p> <p>For the medium-size requirement, the Agusta A109, AVIC II Z-9, Bell 412EP, Bell Agusta AB139, Eurocopter EC155, Mil Mi-171 and Sikorsky S-76 are expected to compete. The heavy helicopter contest should feature the Agusta-Westland EH101, AVIC II Z-8, Eurocopter AS332 Super Puma and Sikorsky S-92.</p> <p>This is the second in a series of SAR helicopter competitions in China. The communications ministry began operating two S-76s in 2002 from Shanghai. Sikorsky believes the fact that the S-76 has carried out several rescues at sea over the last year gives it an edge. </phttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/China-considers-SAR-helicopter-possibilities-171870/
