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.

Sikorsky is based in Stratford, Connecticut and is owned by United Technologies Corp.
