The contract, which includes options to extend by three years, will begin on 1 September 2018, and be operated by a Sikorsky S-92 in oil and gas configuration offshore platform crew changes, and an all-weather-configured (AWSAR) S-92 for SAR work. Both will be equipped with TCAS II, tail-mounted cameras and performance-based navigation. The AWSAR S-92 will be certified for night vision goggles (NVG) operations, with forward-looking infrared (FLIR), auto hover, twin-hoist, mission management with moving map, and increased onboard medical facilities.
