Sikorsky S Skycrane – Wikipedia
Unencumbered by doors or internal dimensions of a cabin fuselage, it would handle objects of sizes and shapes that could never be carried internally. A prototype went airborne for the first time on May 9th, and, inproduction rights for the series was obtained by Erickson Air-Crane which has taken on manufacture of the large helicopter from Sikorsky since.
By the time the S was lost in an accident inits turbine-powered successor was well under way. The S did its job, demonstrating the usefulness of the crane idea and impressing military planners and buyers. Originally a Sikorsky Aircraft product, the type certificate and manufacturing rights were purchased from them by Erickson Air-Crane in They immediately pointed out that making such drastic changes would require considerable engineering and fabrication, not to mention FAA approval.

The Sikorsky S was designed as an enlarged version of the prototype flying crane helicopter, the Sikorsky S The engines were mounted in pods, high on each side. Production of the military-minded Tarhe yielded total units of its own beginning with the six YCHA pre-production models. As it happened, Sikorsky had five of them sitting on the ramp. Triangular in cross section, it fit neatly under the Aircrane.
Their efforts made them, and the Aircrane, national heroes.

The Army put them to work in Vietnam, using them to deliver artillery pieces, retrieve downed aircraft, move cargo and unload ships … and sometimes in ways Sikorsky had never envisioned.
Over the next several years Sikorsky delivered 95 CH Tarhe Skycranes, including the improved CHB model with bigger engines and a higher lift capacity.

He skycfane with guys on the ground — or more likely, strapped onto a tower hundreds of feet above the ground — and together they have to fly the load accurately enough to align bolt holes. When we start the engines, our ground crew climbs those steps, right up there under the spinning rotors and by the jet exhaust, looking for blown hoses, leaks, anything that might give us a problem.
The Crane has steps, like ladders, all over the airframe. This page was last edited on 26 Februaryat The rear-seater could turn his seat around and fly facing the load. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. See templates for discussion to help reach a consensus.
