Sikorsky Aerospace Services has announced the signing of an agreement with RUAG Aviation to designate its Alpnach helicopter facility in Switzerland as an authorized customer service centre (CSC) to support the Sikorsky S-76 helicopter platform.
“The Alpnach Customer Service Center is aligned with our commitment to provide worldwide aftermarket support services close to our customers. It will also be a key support facility for the future expansion of Sikorsky’s S-76 commercial aircraft fleet in south-east and south-central Europe,” said Frank DiPasquale, vice president, Sales and Strategic Relationships, SAS.
RUAG’s customer service centre will offer Sikorsky S-76 helicopter operators complete aftermarket support, including Sikorsky trained local maintenance personnel for on-site comprehensive maintenance management, inspections and spare-parts procurement.
“RUAG is very pleased to extend the existing service portfolio of helicopter platforms by working with SAS to support the Sikorsky S-76 range of helicopters. To have been selected by Sikorsky to operate their south-central European CSC reflects RUAG’s commitment to superior quality and service in the helicopter market,” said Mr. Heinz T. Scholl, vice-president of RUAG Aviation.
