Sikorsky and Babcock Mission Critical Services Ltd signed a 10-year agreement at Farnborough Air Show yesterday to provide Babcock's S-92 helicopter fleet with extended support for its aftermarket material needs.
Sikorsky's Total Assurance Program provides Babcock continued aftermarket support to operate its S-92 fleet within a known budget, reducing the risk of unplanned costs.
The contract was signed in a ceremony at the 2016 Farnborough Air Show by Sikorsky Vice President for Strategy & Business Development Nathalie Previte and Babcock MCS Chief Operating Officer Andrea Cicero.
"We are pleased that Sikorsky is committed to improving material availability to keep these aircraft flying, and we are confident they will continue providing world-class support allowing us to deliver the critical services upon which our customers rely," said Babcock MCS Chief Operating Officer Andrea Cicero.
"We have worked collaboratively with Babcock MCS on a number of points over the past two years," said Sikorsky Vice President for Strategy & Business Development Nathalie Previte. "This agreement is the result of a collaborative effort to expand our support presence and meet Babcock's fleet requirements for improved operational readiness for their critical missions in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres".
The Babcock fleet currently features more than 20 Sikorsky aircraft, operating in the North Sea, Western Australia and Spain.
