SHELTON, Conn., Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Seven damaged UH-60L Black Hawk helicopters of the Colombian army will receive structural repairs at a facility in the country.

Sikorsky Aerospace Services said the work will be performed at a depot-level repair center by a Sikorsky team.

Colombia is the world's fourth-largest operator of the UH-60 and in-country Sikorsky's in-country services are continually expanding as a result.

"Colombia has been our valued customer for over 30 years," said Frank DiPasquale, SAS vice president of Sales and Strategic Relationships. "Our ability to support the operational readiness of the Colombian Armed Services is paramount in their efforts to ensure national order and security.

"The capacity to perform these repairs in-country will represent significant savings to our customer and underscores our ability to be a full life-cycle service provider."

Sikorsky Aerospace Services designs and applies advanced logistics and supply chain solutions for commercial rotary, military rotary and fixed wing operators of Sikorsky aircraft.
