About Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation

Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company, designs, manufactures, and services such military helicopters as the Black Hawk (combat support, border security, medevac); Seahawk (anti-submarine and surface warfare, search and rescue); and Firehawk (firefighting and utility operations). Sikorsky's CH-53K helicopter is used by the US Marines for heavy lift operations. Civil aircraft include the S-76 and S-92, which are used for rescue, offshore oil, medical, and corporate use. The company also provides world-class training, focused logistics support, and advanced targeting and navigation technologies. Its subsidiaries include AAG, which provides helicopter charter services and aircraft maintenance in New York City and the Northeastern US. Composite Technology Inc. (CTI) provides refurbished rotor blades at its Blade Repair Center of Excellence in Dallas, TX. US-based Derco Aerospace offers logistics and technical support for fixed-wing aircraft, fleet management, and MRO services worldwide. In Poland, Sikorsky operates PZL, an aircraft manufacturer expanding into aero structures and helicopters. And Sikorsky Australia provides support for Sikorsky and other helicopters across the Asia Pacific region.

Strategy

As cities are growing and traffic is becoming more congested, Sikorsky is banking on growth in the urban air mobility market, where it plans to capitalize on its existing vertical lift technology. Sikorsky is developing automated and pilot-assisted solutions for its current helicopters and working on electric propulsion technologies. The company is using its Matrix retrofit technology that is integrated into the cockpit and partially automates the helicopter's operation. It's being tested on the Black Hawk in trials with the US Army.

Company Background
