Sikorsky Helitech Signs Australian Defense Contract
Sikorsky Aircraft Australia has signed a four-year agreement with the Australian Defense Force for ongoing logistics and engineering support for the Commonwealth of Australia’s fleet of S-70A and S-70B Black Hawks. The more than $120 million deal, which includes six annual renewable options, is a follow-on agreement to one that is expiring after an eight-year term. Sikorsky Aircraft Australia does business as Sikorsky Helitech. “Brisbane is emerging as the hub for helicopter maintenance in Australia and we remain committed to servicing the rotary support needs of our armed forces,” said George Cheetham, managing director of Sikorsky Helitech.
