Saab will establish a maintenance organisation, supported by Sikorsky Aerospace Maintenance personnel, for HKP 16 comprising helicopter technicians and other technical support staff based at Malmslätt in Linköping, Sweden.
The first helicopters were handed over to the Helicopter Wing in Malmslätt yesterday, and at the beginning of next year, all 15 UH-60M BLACK HAWK helicopters designated HKP 16, will be in operational service.
“We are delighted about our collaboration with Sikorsky and the agreement strengthens our commitment to helicopter maintenance. We possess unique technical expertise with regard to support solutions and are certified to conduct helicopter operations. Combined with Saab’s stable financial position, this will pave the way for success within the helicopter field. We look forward to a long term partnership with both Sikorsky and the Swedish Armed Forces,” says Lars-Erik Wige, Head of the Support and Services business area at Saab.
