Sikorsky Aerospace Services Extending Global Reach with Support Facility in Korea
Times Aerospace Korea created the Gimpo Aerospace Industrial Complex near Incheon and Gimpo International Airports with the purpose of providing state-of-the-art service and support facilities for the Asian aerospace industry.
The facility, operated in conjunction with Times Aerospace Korea, LLC, will receive, stock, and ship a wide array of spare parts to support the VX/H-92® helicopter flown by the Republic of Korea Air Force and to support other Sikorsky customers in the region who operate a variety of civil and commercial rotorcraft including the S-61TM, S-76®, and S-92® helicopters. In the future, the facility also may stock parts to support fixed wing aircraft owned and operated in the region by customers of Derco Aerospace, a Sikorsky Aerospace Services company.
"With this state-of-the-art facility, Sikorsky Aerospace Services will be able to significantly improve its level of support for this VIP customer as well as for other valued customers in the region," said David Adler, President of Sikorsky Aerospace Services.
