Sikorsky Aerospace Services Consolidates Kiowa Aircraft Support

Agreements Merged For The Australian Defence Force Helicopter Fleet

Brisbane, Australia-based Sikorsky Helitech has merged several support agreements that will provide deeper component and accessories maintenance for the Australian Defence Force (ADF) Kiowa aircraft fleet. The $7.5 million contract announced Monday represents a consolidation of services that were previously administered as separate support agreements.

"For more than 10 years, Sikorsky Helitech has supported the Kiowa aircraft, and we are very pleased to be positioned as the pre-eminent supplier of deeper level maintenance for the ADF's platform. Leveraging our engineering and logistics capabilities, this contract provides the ADF unique and extensive resources that will deliver direct support and future options throughout the lifecycle of the Kiowa aircraft," said George Cheetham, director of Sikorsky Helitech.

"We are able to supply single source solutions for universal platforms beyond Sikorsky products. This expanded maintenance agreement solidifies our OEM expertise and capabilities and builds on SAS's status as a global service provider with local capabilities," said David Adler, president of Sikorsky Aerospace Services.

Sikorsky Helitech will offer component aftermarket support for the Kiowa fleet supplemental to maintenance and repair services handled on-base by military personnel. Maintenance of repairable items includes aircraft transmissions, blades, gear boxes and auxiliary power units.
