The Sikorsky S-61R is a twin-engine medium-lift helicopter designed and manufactured by the American aerospace giant Sikorsky Aircraft. It was initially developed as the S-61L, a variant of the successful Sikorsky S-61, and was designed to provide improved performance and increased safety compared to its predecessor. It was first produced in 1964 and has since seen service in a variety of roles, including search and rescue, military transport, and firefighting. The S-61R has been widely used by commercial operators, including several major airlines, and is still in service today.
The S-61R is powered by two General Electric T58-GE-8F turboshaft engines, each rated at 1,500 shp (1,100 kW). It has a maximum speed of 140 knots (259 km/h) and a range of 595 nm (1,100 km). It is equipped with a four-bladed main rotor and a four-bladed tail rotor. The S-61R can accommodate up to 16 passengers, or can be configured as a cargo transport with a payload of up to 7,400 lb (3,400 kg).
The S-61R is currently available for sale in the used helicopter market. Prices range from $1 million to $3 million, depending on the model and condition.
