AAR gets FAA approval for new composite interior for S-92
AAR has received FAA certification of its new and improved Off Shore Airliner (OSA) interior design for Sikorsky’s S-92 fleet of offshore utility aircraft. In addition to the composite interiors for the Sikorsky S-92 helicopter program, AAR also provides precision machining services for several hundred aircraft.
AAR made the announcement from the NBAA in Orlando.
AAR successfully delivered its first aircraft interior earlier this year. The interior design has a cleaner appearance with updated passenger provisions, improved maintenance access, lower interior cabin noise and low weight LED lighting upgrades. Mechanical installation details have been enhanced to significantly reduce installation time and eliminate the need for rigging for fit and finish.
“As we build on our reputation as an industry leader in the supply of aerostructures for fixed-wing aircraft, to become a new supplier for an OEM of rotorcraft demonstrates the breadth of our engineering and manufacturing capabilities,” said Tim Dumbauld, vice president and general manager for AAR’s precision machining and composites fabrication businesses. “We’re pleased to partner with Sikorsky and support all of its deliveries of S-92 aircraft.”
