Sikorsky Opens New Blade Repair & Overhaul Center

Sikorsky Aerospace Services has formally dedicated its Composite Technology Inc. (CTI) unit's new "purpose built" helicopter blade repair and overhaul center at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in Texas.

The new, state-of-the-art 152,000-square-foot building was designed using Lean manufacturing concepts, and is nearly three times the size of CTI's former facility. Expanded capabilities will include a 6,000-shaft horsepower dynamic test stand capable of supporting a wide range of helicopter models and two downdraft paint booths. The company's employment has more than doubled in the past year to 135 technicians and support staff.

"Sikorsky Aircraft is proud to be a part of the rich and preeminent aerospace tradition here in Texas and the new CTI facility is an important component in the broad range of aftermarket services for our customers," said Sikorsky President Jeffrey P. Pino.

David Adler, President of Sikorsky Aerospace Services, added: "This is a world-class blade repair facility that offers us greater efficiencies, which translates to faster repairs and lower costs for our customers. With operating costs playing such a critical role in our industry, we are focused on helping operators achieve their objectives through CTI's technical expertise and multi-OEM capability."

Texas Gov. Rick Perry commended Sikorsky for its ongoing contribution to the state's thriving aerospace industry. "Sikorsky Aerospace's expansion is welcome news for Texas and just one example of how the Texas economy remains comparatively strong in the midst of a sluggish national economy," said Gov. Perry.

"Our state's commitment to low taxes and predictable regulations has fostered an economic climate where businesses can prosper, enabling them to develop the technology that will advance our global competitiveness and create needed jobs for hard-working Texans."
