How do you make the world's most trusted helicopters even better?

By pushing the boundaries of vertical flight. Our technology sets the standard for speed and performance, and raises the competitive bar.

Sikorsky continues to revolutionize vertical flight as it develops the world's next generation of helicopters. The CH-53K will be the world's largest heavy-lift maritime helicopter with a cargo hold that can easily accommodate a vehicle the size of a Humvee. Also being developed is a prototype of the S-97 Raider, a light tactical helicopter based on the company's revolutionary X2 Technology demonstrator. The S-97 Raider will be able to cruise comfortably at 220 knots — nearly twice the cruise speed of conventional helicopters — while retaining all the attributes of today's highest performing helicopters.
