6th January 2009 - 00:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Sikorsky Aerospace Services has announced the signing of a $4 million contract with Presidential Airways to provide Heads Up Display (HUD) systems. The distribution of these systems will be performed by Helicopter Support, a Sikorsky Aerospace Services company. Sikorsky Aerospace Services is the aftermarket business of Sikorsky Aircraft, a subsidiary of United Technologies.

The Heads Up Display allows pilots to see flight instruments and other helicopter information through an eyepiece in their helmet without having to look down at the instrument panel. The system can be used during day and night operations. The type of aircraft being modified has not been disclosed.

“The HUD systems are an innovative technology designed to promote safer missions because pilots can maintain a forward-looking focus,” said Frank DiPasquale, Vice President, Business Development, Sikorsky Aerospace Services. “We are pleased to be able to provide Presidential with a solution that meets their mission requirements. This is their first order for HUD units, and we look forward to continuing this successful business relationship.”

Presidential Airways is a Worldwide Services company based in North Carolina and affliated to Blackwater Worldwide.
