CPI Aerostructures has signed a five-year contract worth up to $8.2 million with Sikorsky to supply gunner window assemblies for the UH-60M Black Hawk helicopter, the company announced on 20 September.

The agreement with Sikorsky goes into effect in 2018 and will run through 2022.

The windows are two-piece constructions located behind the pilot’s seat on each side of the helicopter. The windows slide open for machine gun operators’ use.

CPI Aerostructures has been manufacturing gunner window assemblies for the Black Hawk helicopter since 2010.  

Douglas J McCrosson, president and CEO of CPI Aerostructures, said: ‘This new multi-year follow-on order highlights our exceptional programme execution, quality, value, and customer service to Sikorsky on the UH-60 platform.

‘We are honoured that Sikorsky has again selected CPI Aerostructures to manufacture an important component that is critical to fulfilling a key mission of this extremely effective and versatile aircraft.’
