The multi-mission aircraft can perform a variety of tasks over land and water, including search and rescue, humanitarian relief, anti-piracy, troop transport and medical evacuation. Sikorsky is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp.

“These S-70i aircraft are equipped with exceptional operational capability to meet the regional security requirements of the Brunei Ministry of Defense,” said Jennifer Caruso, Sikorsky’s Vice President of Army and Air Force Programs.

“We thank the ministry for their trust and support, and we look forward to serving the Royal Brunei Air Force as it fields a modern and highly capable rotary wing platform that will perform a diverse set of security missions.”

In total, the ministry ordered 12 Black Hawks of the same type aircraft, all of which are set to arrive by the end of 2014. The contract includes ground support equipment, spares and technical training. The ministry furthermore has an option to order additional 10 aircraft as part of the same contract.

The first batch of four aircraft arrived on November 27 via Antonov transport plane from Sikorsky’s completion center in West Palm Beach, Florida, two months ahead of schedule.
