Probably. They did end up buying Schweizer to get into the really light end of the market (probably with an eye toward unmanned applications).yasotay said:Great find! Thanks. I have always wondered why Sikorsky has never pursued a light helicopter. Not able to compete in a flush market?
Yes we did,here;I'm not sure if this has been featured here before but this is a study by Sikorsky into developing a high-performance helicopter based on the S-61. This report features 3-view drawings of various versions of the proposed HPH. I hope this is of interest.
