Erickson began operating the S-64 in 1971, leasing three Skycrane from Sikorsky Aircraft and using it to revolutionize the aerial harvesting of timber. By 1992, with a full fleet of S-64s moving towards obsolescence, along with, inadequate S-64 support and failing supply chains, complicated pilot workload, occasionally obsolete analog instruments, restricted use as a construction platform, frequency of in-flight engine shutdown, and dangers associated with nighttime firefighting missions, Erickson realized it needed to gain control of the aircraft's future.
