Sikorsky Aircraft signed a five-year, multi-service contract with the U.S. government for 537 H-60 Hawk helicopters to be delivered to the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy. The contract, for UH-60M Black Hawk, HH-60M Medevac, and MH-60S Seahawk aircraft, is valued at $7.4 billion and includes options for an additional 263 aircraft, spares, and kits, bringing the potential value of the contract to $11.6 billion. Actual production quantities will be determined year-by-year over the life of the program based on funding allocations set by Congress and Pentagon acquisition priorities. Deliveries are scheduled to be made from 2007 to 2013.
