UI Helicopter Appointed as Sikorsky-Authorized Customer Support Center in Korea

Sikorsky has appointed UI Helicopter as an authorized Customer Support Center in the Republic of Korea.

 Based in Yesan, 100 km south of Seoul, the CSC will enable operators of Sikorsky S-76 and S-92 commercial helicopters to source repair and overhaul services within the country’s borders.

“UI Helicopter has more than proved through years of professionalism and discipline the ability to maintain, repair and overhaul large helicopters,” said Christophe Nurit, Sikorsky’s vice president for Asia. “We are very pleased to recommend UI Helicopter to the growing number of operators of S-76 and S-92 aircraft in South Korea, who rightly expect the highest level of support for their Sikorsky aircraft.”

Customers across the Republic of Korea operate 14 of Sikorsky’s S-76 medium size commercial helicopter to transport corporate executives and for utility missions.

 Of Sikorsky’s larger S-92 helicopter, three are flown by the Korean Air Force for executive transport, and one by the Korean Coast Guard for search and rescue duties. A second S-92 aircraft for the Coast Guard is on order from Sikorsky for delivery in 2017.

UI Helicopter will be the only Sikorsky-authorized Customer Support Center in the Republic of Korea to service S-76 and S-92 helicopters.

Of the more than 20 Customer Support Centers authorized by Sikorsky worldwide, only a small number are approved to offer MRO services for both Sikorsky commercial helicopter types.
