Sikorsky Re-Ups Vector as S-61, S-76 Maintenance Center
Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services has obtained re-certification as an overhaul and repair center for the Sikorsky S-76 and S-61 lines. The Canadian MRO is also an authorized S-76 Customer Support Center. The approval allows Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services-North America (HSNA) to continue supplying MRO services to S-76 and S-61 operators.
According to HSNA President Paul Cockell, the company has made “significant investments” in test facilities, training, inventory and tooling for Sikorsky helicopters in recent years. Steve Bohlman, director of global service and support for Sikorsky Aerospace Services (SAS), described the partnership with Vector as “pivotal” to the manufacturer’s support efforts in the region.
