Vector Showcases Upgrades at Heli-Expo
Maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services-North America (Booth 7139) is displaying a number of its services during Heli-Expo. Operators will be able to speak with Vector support teams on a number of topics, including some of its newer services like a UH1 upgrade program, Turbomeca Arriel 2 and GE CT7 engine repairs and glass cockpit updated for Bell, Eurocopter and Sikorsky variants.
Within the commercial helicopter market, Vector is highlighting its Arriel 2 upgrade as a large growth area, as well as the Sikorsky S-61T and AS332 Super Puma programs. The company has been involved in a number of military programs, including with the Canadian Department of Defence’s CH-124, CH-146 and CT7 and overhaul programs for the U.S. Navy’s TH-57 and U.S. Army’s TH-67. UH1 upgrades also grew in 2011 with installations for military units in the U.S. and Brazil, in addition to international interest in the program.
