McMahon Phases Out The Last Sikorsky S58T From Aircraft Fleet
CANTON, MICHIGAN - McMahon Helicopter Services, Inc. has officially phased out the Sikorsky S58T series of helicopters from the company aircraft fleet after 21 years in service. The S58T helicopters completed thousands of successful missions for McMahon and accumulated thousands of flight hours. Some of the missions included cargo and passenger transportation, external load work, feature film productions, television shows and live presentations.
McMahon owned and operated three S58T's in the early 2000's. The first of three S58T's was purchased in 1995 and was recently sold in October to an overseas buyer continuing to operate the helicopter for external load and fire suppression operations.
McMahon plans to add new helicopters to the current fleet capable of handling multi-mission roles, while adding new capabilities and increasing fuel efficiency as customer demand permits.
