Kaman Delivers 1,000th H-60 Helicopter Cockpit to Sikorsky

Source: Kaman Aerosystems

Kaman Aerosystems today announced delivery of its 1,000th H-60 helicopter cockpit to Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky). The milestone UH-60M BLACK HAWK helicopter cockpit was incorporated into an H-60 airframe that underwent final assembly at Sikorsky’s Bridgeport, Connecticut facility and was delivered to the U.S. Army.
 

Kaman’s 1,000th H-60 cockpit delivery marks an eight year relationship between Sikorsky and Kaman on this program. Kaman has been delivering H-60 cockpits since responsibility for manufacturing the cockpits was transferred to Kaman from Sikorsky in 2005.  Kaman manufactures the detail parts, conducts final assembly, and manages the extensive supply chain for three different H-60 cockpit models, L, S, M and other derivatives, including the Medevac, which is derived from the “M” model.  All H-60 cockpits delivered by Kaman have been manufactured at its Kaman Aerosystems facility in Jacksonville, Florida.
