12th December 2016 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team



The Chilean Air Force has ordered six S-70i Black Hawk helicopters from Sikorsky under a contract announced on 7 December.

The force originally announced its decision to procure the six S-70i helicopters in August. 

The aircraft are being acquired for the service's medium-lift helicopter recapitalisation programme. They will be deployed in a range of roles including military and humanitarian missions, such as troop transport, search and rescue, and disaster relief.

Sikorsky will provide a logistical support package as part of the contract that will cover spare parts, pilots and maintenance specialists training, on-site technical assistance and ground support equipment.

The helicopters are due for delivery in 2018.
