Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. and Aero Vodochody a.s. signed a memorandum of understanding to jointly explore aerospace industry cooperation in Central and Eastern Europe. Aero Vodochody has been supplying airframes for the Sikorsky S-76 helicopter since 2000. The program includes detail part fabrication, airframe assembly, installation of hydraulic, electronic, and fuel systems and avionics, and, following ground tests of the installed systems, management of more than 200 suppliers. The helicopter airframes are transported from Aero Vodochody by land to Germany, and then shipped to the U.S., where finishing work is carried out at Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. facilities.
