Sikorsky Aerospace Services Introduces SAS Avionics Center of Excellence
Sikorsky Aerospace Services announced today that it has opened a rotary and fixed wing Avionics Center of Excellence at its Derco Aerospace campus in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.
The announcement came at the Paris Air Show.
The Sikorsky Aerospace Services Avionics Center of Excellence provides comprehensive avionics repair and overhaul services at the Line Replaceable Unit (LRU), Sub Replaceable Unit (SRU), and component levels.
Using specialized open architecture test and measurement equipment, the Center is capable of providing a wide range of repair and overhaul support for fixed and rotary wing avionics. The Center supports the following platforms: C-130, F-15, F-16, F-18, UH-60, H-53, S-76, S-92, and CV-22 aircraft.
“The launch of the Sikorsky Aerospace Services Avionics Center of Excellence further supports our mission to provide complete aftermarket support to the rotary and fixed wing communities,” said David Adler, President of Sikorsky Aerospace Services.
“It positions Sikorsky to fulfill avionics repair and overhaul requirements that traditionally used third-party services. Establishing this capability in-house allows us to better control cost and turn times, resulting in efficient and cost effective solutions for our customers.”
