Sikorsky has authorised Calgary, Canada-based Eagle Copters as its latest customer support centre. Sikorsky's customer support centres enable quick access to logistics and spare parts inventory for operators while providing advanced service capabilities. Eagle Copters will be Sikorsky's fourth in Canada, adding to the growing network of 22 Sikorsky support centres worldwide.
“We're very honoured to become the next authorised Sikorsky customer support centre,” says president and CEO Barry Kohler. “We have been expanding our product and service offerings over the past few years and joining the Sikorsky team and working on the time-honoured S-76 platform is a logical extension of our experience in medium helicopters. We have a loyal customer base that counts on us to provide innovative solutions in fleet management, and we're really looking forward to bringing our focus on mission success and safety into this market space.”
Sikorsky VP for strategy and business development Nathalie Previte adds: “Sikorsky and Eagle share a commitment to quality, and we're excited that Eagle will support the growing S-76 fleet and our valued operators and customers.”
Seventy Sikorsky commercial helicopters currently operate in Canada, supporting a variety of missions including offshore oil worker transportation, charter airline service, emergency medical service, utility work and executive and VIP transport. The S-76 fleet has provided service in Canada for almost 40 years and continues to operate successfully in all environments from coast to coast.
