Model Description

The Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane is an American twin-engine heavy-lift helicopter, manufactured by the Erickson Air-Crane company. The Sikorsky S-64 was designed as an enlarged version of the prototype flying crane helicopter, the Sikorsky S-60. The prototype S-64 first flew in May 1962. The United States Army placed an initial order for six S-64A helicopters and seven S-64E variants were built for the civil market.

In 1992, manufacturing rights for the Skycrane were purchased from Sikorsky by Erickson Air-Crane. 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. Erickson gives each of its S-64s an individual name, the best-known being "Elvis", used in fighting fires in Australia alongside "The Incredible Hulk" and "Isabelle".

This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
