Very interesting. Having received my certification on the UH-60A direct from Sikorsky, I have a sentimental connection to Sikorsky but I can't help wonder what kind of an upgraded hybrid would come from a company with a background in weaponry and the best utility helicopter in the world. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a Sikorsky fan...just wondering.

They gave me a certificate and a key chain.  I like the key chain, the certificate is in a box somewhere.  
The future of Sikorsky is X2 technology with the development of the S97 Raider and the SB1 Defiant.

Six, I'm actually surprised to hear they still give the Certificate and key chain. I also got the key chain but lost it in a house fire four years ago. I've actually tried to contact Sikorsky to see if I can get a replacement key chain...but no joy.
