It takes the right tooling to make a helicopter come together, and sometimes it takes teamwork to create that tooling. Professional Aviation Associates (Booth No. 4006), a subsidiary of Greenwich AeroGroup, worked in tandem with Aerosync Engineering & Consulting recently to deliver two UH60 Black Hawk fuselage and tailcone alignment fixtures to the Colombian air force.
The joint venture between the two companies is the beginning of a heavy structures program that should expand shortly to Black Hawk operators worldwide. The two companies hope to move into providing major airframe support for Bell and Sikorsky military and commercial helicopters, as well.
