Aero Vodochody and Sikorsky extend contract on Black Hawk cockpits

According to a new amendment of the contract, Aero Vodochody will produce cockpits for Black Hawks at least until year 2023.

Aero Vodochody produces fully equipped cockpits for UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters since 2011. "The Black Hawk program is one of the strategic programs in our aerostructures production. The extension of the contract for five more years is a sign of our reliability and also of our strong relationship with our customer", said Giuseppe Giordo, president of Aero Vodochody.

Aero delivers the Black Hawk cockpits as a dual-source to Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, which belongs to Lockheed Martin group. By the end of May 2017, Aero delivered 240 cockpits for UH-60M. Aero and Sikorsky cooperate also on S-76 program, where Aero produces whole helicopter airframe ready for installation of dynamic parts. These programs are demonstration of capabilities of Aero in helicopter production.

In international cooperation, Aero profiles itself as a risk-sharing partner to main aerospace companies and collaborates for example with Embraer on KC-390 program and with Bombardier on CSeries aircraft program. In the future, Aero - the biggest Czech aircraft manufacturer would like to extend its production in helicopter sector.
