The Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane (ICAO: S64 / WAKE: MEDIUM) is a twin-engine heavy-lift helicopter. Created in Second Life by Milestone Aircraft, the aircraft was based on the real-life S-64 Skycrane designed by Sikorsky Aircraft. It is the civil version of the United States Army's CH-54 Tarhe.

Background

The real-life Sikorsky S-64 was designed as an enlarged version of the prototype flying crane helicopter, the Sikorsky S-60. The S-64 had a six-blade main rotor and was powered by two 4,050 shaft horsepower (3,020 kW) Pratt & Whitney JFTD12A turboshaft engines. The prototype S-64 first flew on 9 May 1962 and was followed by two further examples for evaluation by the German armed forces. The Germans did not place an order, but the United States Army placed an initial order for six S-64A helicopters (with the designation YCH-54A Tarhe). Seven S-64E variants were built by Sikorsky for the civil market. Since that time, Erickson Air-Crane has become the manufacturer and world's largest operator of S-64 Aircranes and has made over 1,350 changes to the airframe, instrumentation, and payload capabilities of the helicopter.
