PZL Mielec rolls out Black Hawk cabin

MIELEC, Poland, March 12 (UPI) -- Sikorsky Aircraft Corp.'s affiliate in Poland, PZL Mielec, Thursday marked its first completed production of a Black Hawk helicopter cabin.

PZL Mielec marked the S-70i Black Hawk cabin rollout with a ceremony Thursday that included Polish government officials and representatives of Sikorsky.

"Sikorsky Aircraft considers PZL Mielec as a key pillar to the success of future Black Hawk helicopter assembly," Bob Kokorda, Sikorsky vice president for corporate strategy and synergy, said in a statement.

"Beyond PZL Mielec, further production opportunities for the S-70i Black Hawk helicopter in other Polish plants will ensure access to a high-quality supply chain as well as opportunities for localized maintenance and overhaul, completion and training centers, which will enable Sikorsky to achieve competitive pricing and greater access to the global marketplace."
