SAS to support Brazilian UH-60 repair services

15th August 2013 - 17:08 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Sikorsky Aerospace Services (SAS) will support the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter fleet of the Brazilian Air Force under a direct commercial repair agreement announced on 15 August. The multi-year contract will streamline support services and will help enhance operational readiness for the H-60 helicopter fleet.

Under the agreement, aircraft components will be shipped to Sikorsky-approved repair facilities with return transfer to designated Brazilian Air Force bases. As the aftermarket business of Sikorsky Aircraft, SAS will carry out repairs to airframe and engine components, gearboxes, hydraulics, and landing gears.

Stephen Bohlman, SAS director, Global Service & Support, said: ‘We have a longstanding history with Brazil, and this maintenance contract is another step in forwarding a full portfolio of support services. Separately, SAS entered into an agreement to establish in-country warehousing of spare parts in support of Brazil's commercial operators, and we look forward to continuing to expand our mutual relationship.’

The Brazilian Air Force purchased Sikorsky's legacy Black Hawk helicopters under a foreign military sale with the US government.
