Erickson Incorporated, a worldwide leading operator, maintainer, and
manufacturer of utility aircraft, announces new aircraft orders to be delivered in 2020 and 2021,
demonstrating further commitment by global customers to the platform.
Korea Forest Service (KFS) purchased another S-64 Air Crane® helicopter, which will add the K9
S-64 to their fleet. Recently, Erickson announced the delivery of K7 and K8 S-64 Air Crane®
helicopters to KFS. With the delivery of K9 set for 2020, this will bring KFS operational aircraft to
seven S-64 Air Crane® helicopters in South Korea.
In addition, Vigili del Fuoco (VVF), Italy, announced two S-64 aircraft sales. Erickson plans to
deliver one S-64F in 2020 and the second to be delivered in 2021. Both aircraft will support VVF
for firefighting and multi-mission emergency response support in Europe.
These orders signal continued demand for the S-64 around the world.
“The recent acquisitions of KFS and VVF reaffirms the S-64 Air Crane® as the premier forestry
defense and emergency response resource. The consistent investment in product improvement
and innovation has promoted customer confidence; we are thrilled to continue our partnership in
supporting their critical missions.” – Justin Saxbury, Senior Sales Director of Aerosystems
