The U.S. Department of Defense awarded Sikorsky $116.5 million for maintenance and overhaul of the Black Hawk main rotor blade.

Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of August 15, 2026.

The UH-60 Black Hawk has been operational in the US Army since 1978. More than 2,000 aircraft of different variants are in service with the U.S., and more than 600 have been exported.

The primary mission of the Black Hawk helicopter is as a troop carrier and logistical support aircraft, but the helicopter can also be configured to carry out medical evacuation, command-and-control, search-and-rescue, armed escort, electronic warfare and executive transport missions.
