Includes Engine And Gearbox Upgrades
Sikorsky Aerospace Services, the aftermarket company of Sikorsky
Aircraft, announced this week a multimillion- dollar contract to
convert six Colombian Air Force UH-60A Black Hawk helicopters into
the more modern UH-60L configuration. Two additional upgrade kits
also are included in the program.
The US Army and Sikorsky Aerospace Services have performed
A-to-L conversions on US Army Black Hawk helicopters. Colombia
operates the world’s third-largest Black Hawk helicopter
fleet, and with this new contract becomes the first international
customer for the A-to-L conversion
"As the Black Hawk helicopter manufacturer, Sikorsky is uniquely
qualified to do this work for governments around the world. We
expect to significantly grow this part of our Global Maintenance
and Modifications business," said David Adler, President of
Sikorsky Aerospace Services.
The A-to-L conversion program includes a T700-701D engine
upgrade for increased power and reliability, an enhanced main
gearbox with increased durability, new flight controls and wiring
harnesses, and avionics and instrument panel modifications. The
Sikorsky Aerospace Maintenance unit of Sikorsky Aerospace Services
will perform most of the work at its Chase Field, TX, facility.
Sikorsky Aerospace Services’ Helicopter Support, Inc.
(HSI) unit will procure the parts and manage the program.
