Sikorsky S-61

The Sikorsky S-61, introduced in 1961, stands as a medium-lift airliner and a civilian adaptation of the Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King helicopter. The inception of the original Sea King resulted from Sikorsky securing a development contract with the U.S. Navy. Upon approval of the model, Sikorsky promptly commenced work on a civilian variant of the aircraft, marketed as a transport rotorcraft. The two primary variants, the S-61L and S-61N, featured the latter as the amphibious version of the initial S-61L model. These variants emerged as highly popular airliners and rotorcrafts for supporting oil rigs during their service period.
