Now if anyone in infinite flight has 1,500,000 million hours then I’m impressed!

That such a great achievement!!

1’500’000 hours. Doesn’t actually sound that much, does it? Like ”oh yeah that’s maybe ten years or something, isn’t it?”

  • 1’500’000h / 24h = 62’500 days
  • 62’500d / 365d = 171 years

Not bad. In other words: If there would be only one flying S-92, that single chopper would have been operating since 1848.

Sikorskies are literally everywhere around Ireland, UK and Scandinavian regions. No wonder why their work is paying off. These are beautiful machines, serving for tens of years. Mainly serving as Lifeguards, their engines are powerful enough to force through the windy coastline. Congrats to the manufacturers. Congrats to the team. 👍

Take into account that they aren’t commonly used at night, and are not always flying in the day, and it would have been flying since 1677.

Brilliant math, but according to Wikipedia, the S92 have only been around since 2004… 🤯

Lucky they built more than one 😉
Anyone been able to discover how many were ever sold?
