Sikorsky appoints Mycopter Aviation Services as support centre
Sikorsky has appointed Mycopter Aviation Services as the first Sikorsky-authorised customer support centre in south-east Asia for the S-76 family of helicopters.
The support centre will operate from Mycopter’s Subang Airport in Malaysia. Currently around 50 S-76 helicopters operate in the region.
The announcement was made during the 2015 Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition.
“Sikorsky is committed to bringing customer support services closer to operators of S-76 helicopters across Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Brunei and Singapore.”
Shawn Cornell, general manager of Sikorsky south-east Asia, said: “Sikorsky is committed to bringing customer support services closer to operators of S-76 helicopters across Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Brunei and Singapore.”
“As the newest authorized service provider within Sikorsky’s growing S-76 global support network, MyCopter Aviation has completed the required maintenance training for all S-76 variants, and is committed to Sikorsky’s high standards for customer support,” added Cornell.

Haji Mohamad Nasrun Bin Omar, chairman of Mycopter said: “Mycopter Aviation Services is very pleased to have been appointed a Sikorsky-authorized Customer Support Center for S-76 fleet operators in Malaysia and the Southeast Asia region. With the continued growth of the S-76 fleet in the Asia Pacific region expected from the new S-76D variant, Mycopter Aviation looks forward to supporting operators with a wide range of MRO (maintenance, repairs and operations) support services, including modifications.”
Sikorsky is demonstrating the new S-76D helicopter in the Southeast Asia region over the next two months.
In early March, Sikorsky began a two-month S-76D exhibition and demonstration tour across Southeast Asia, starting at the Subang, Malaysia SkyPark Aviation Center. The aircraft will tour Thailand and Indonesia in late March and April.
