MILWAUKEE, June 15 (UPI) -- U.S. company Sikorsky Aerospace Services Monday announced the opening of its new rotary and fixed wing repair and overhaul services facility in Milwaukee.
Sikorsky has opened its new Avionics Center of Excellence to support rotary and fixed wing specialized repair work. The Avionics Center of Excellence, located at the company's Milwaukee-based Derco Aerospace campus, is expected to offer repairs at the Line Replaceable Unit, Sub Replaceable Unit and component aftermarket support levels.
Sikorsky says the comprehensive rotary and fixed wing aircraft repair facility supports nine major aircraft used by militaries and other defense authorities.
"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," David Adler, Sikorsky Aerospace Services president, said in a statement.
"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."
