The Sikorsky HH-52 Seaguard (designated S-62 by the company) was a single turbine engine, amphibious helicopter, with its main use in air-sea rescue. The aircraft was introduced in 1961, with prototyopes first flying in 1958. The aircraft featured a boat hulled shape fuselage, and a General Electric T58 engine powering a three-bladed rotor, allowing for an expanded MTOW. A number of the initial model was purchased to be utilised by the U.S. Coast Guard, as search and rescue helicopters. A later variant was the S-62C, which was the companies designation of the HH-52A Seaguard.
