Activities included production of the Sea King, developed from the Sikorsky S-61 to Royal Navy requirements; Commando army version of Sea King; and Gazelle and Lynx, which formed part of the Anglo-French helicopter cooperation program with Aerospatiale. Gazelle production started in 1971 and Lynx in 1975 (naval, military, and civil versions constructed).
