Sikorsky’s $8.5-11.7B “Multi-Year 8” H-60 Helicopter Contract
March 7/23: Korea CAE USA won a $35.9 million deal for the production, delivery, installation, verification testing, and associated logistics support of one exportable, non-motion MH-60R Tactical Operational Flight Trainer configured for the Republic of Korea. Work will take place ind Florida, Maryland, Quebec, Florida and South Korea. Expected completion will be in December 2026.
In July 2012, the US military signed another huge contract with Sikorsky. With production of the Army’s HH/UH-60M, and the Navy’s MH-60S and MH-60R helicopters, all in full swing, there’s no question about the need for future orders. In that environment, multi-year contracts allow efficiencies in purchasing, and security of staffing, throughout Sikorsky’s supply chain. These new helicopter types are also available to Foreign Military Sales class customers, under the American contract’s advantageous pricing and terms. The UH-60M, MH-60S and MH-60R models have already inked export deals, and official requests indicate that more deals are in the pipeline.
The new multi-year 2013-2017 contract could be worth up to $11.7 billion, and follows a 5-year, multi-service “MYP-VII” contract in December 2007. Like its predecessor, it covers UH-60M Black Hawk troop transport and light cargo helicopters, Army HH-60M SAR (Search And Rescue) / MEDEVAC (MEDical EVACuation) helicopters, and the US Navy’s MH-60S and MH-60R Seahawk helicopters.
