1995 Schweizer 269C
This aircraft is in as-new condition. It seats three. The aircraft is powered by a Lycoming HIO-360 SER (Reciprocating) offering 205 horsepower. It weighs less than 12,500 pounds. Since 1983, Schweizer has built the 269C/300C, initially under licence for Hughes. Schweizer Aircraft Corp. acquired all rights to the helicopter in 1986. In 2005, Schweizer Aircraft Corp. became a wholly owned Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. subsidiary, rebranding its popular light training helicopter as the Sikorsky S-300. In 2009, Sikorsky Aircraft announced the creation of Sikorsky Global Helicopters, a business unit made up of the manufacturer’s commercial products, including the S-76, S-92 and H-92 platforms, as well as the Schweizer helicopter line. N139JS was fitted with special equipment, including GPS Receivers, part of and used for the FLI-MAP (Fast Laser Imaging - Mapping and Profiling) surveying and mapping method. It was flown in at Amsterdam-Schiphol, the Netherlands, as airfreight out of the USA and trucked to the Heli Holland maintenance facilities near Emmen. The Schweizer was built up and flown to Teuge aerodrome. After three weeks of hard working for measurements along the rivers in Holland the helicopter returned to Emmen. The Schweizer 269C was crated and returned as airfreight to the US.
