Sikorsky Parts Issues Receiving Media Attention
The Project on Government Oversight NGO notes a recent rise in the number of “high visibility issues” related to Sikorsky helicopters and parts, according to Sikorsky internal documents archived at POGO. These include parts malfunctions, and news station WTNH is also covering the issue.
POGO’s sense of the cause behind this phenomenon is more speculative, and centers around a redeployment of quality inspectors within Sikorsky. Other explanations are certainly possible, and DID would welcome a submission from Sikorsky that elected to discuss this 9-month trend in more depth and address these variances.
