New Search and Rescue Helicopters for Cornwall

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

Cornwall’s HM Coastguard base has recently welcomed a new search and rescue helicopter.

The base in Newquay now boasts two state-of-the-art aircraft, nicknamed ‘the Cornish Sisters’.

The Sikorsky S-92 aircraft feature the latest technology, including night vision, mission management and medical equipment.

Operated by Bristow Helicopters Ltd, the Cornish Sisters are set to take to the skies in January 2016.

Samantha Willenbacher, director of UK search and rescue at Bristow Helicopters, explained where the name came from:

“We are excited to welcome the second S92 to its base in Cornwall. One of the Newquay-based engineers has named the aircraft the Cornish Sisters and we are delighted to see them flying from their new home.”

“We continue to remain focused on training and preparations to take over this lifesaving service from our colleagues in the military in January 2016, and once again thank the local community for their support as we prepare to deliver this vital public service.”
