Nuovo rapporto del GAO ... che conferma la diminuzione dei costi del programma ...

Quote

Projected total costs for 23 new Sikorsky VH-92As, aircraft for the Presidential Helicopter Replacement programme, have declined $230 million from a previous estimate.
Sikorsky attributes the savings to several factors, including stable requirements, a low number of design changes, and programme efficiencies, says the Government Accountability Office (GAO) (*)
The projected total cost of the US Navy (USN) programme fell from $5.18 billion to $4.95 billion.
Initial delivery of VH-92A presidential helicopters is scheduled to begin in FY2020 with production ending in FY2023. 
The presidential helicopters are based on the commercial Sikorsky S-92A, a twin-engined, medium-lift helicopter. 
The new helicopters will replace the current US Marine Corps (USMC) fleet of VH-3D and VH-60N aircraft.

Assegnato il contratto per il primo lotto ...

Quote

Sikorsky was awarded a $542 million contract from the US Navy (USN) to build six production VH-92A Presidential Helicopters, an aircraft which will be known by the call sign “Marine One” when the president of the USA flies aboard.
The helicopters are part of low rate initial production lot 1. 
The total Presidential Helicopter programme of record calls for 23 aircraft to be managed and flown by the US Marine Corps (USMC). 
Sikorsky will deliver the first six production helicopters between 2021 and 2023. 
The contract also provides for spares and training support.
The USN reached a Milestone C decision on 30 May to move from the aircraft’s development programme into production. 
Prior to that decision, the VH-92A test aircraft located at NAS Patuxent River in Maryland underwent Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) testing and operations assessments, including landing and taking off from the south lawn of the White House without damaging the grass, says the USN. 
The VH-92A has flown more than 520 flight test hours in total.

A parte che ne hanno costruiti una manciata e 2 si sono schiantati (uno per problemi meccanici), io eviterei di chiamarla...

542 milioni per 6 elicotteri più quanto speso finora anche per cestinare un ipermodificato AW-101 e la prospettiva di arrivare a 23. Il tutto per portare a spasso presidente & co.

Il masochismo al servizio della politica.

Ti riferisci in modo specifico ai VH-92A presidenziali o, più genericamente, agli S-92 commerciali?

A che dovrei riferirmi quando parlo dei due incidenti? La frase dell'articolo si riferisce all'S-92 intesa come famiglia, mica a qualche prototipo di elicottero presidenziale manco entrato in produzione.
