Bangalore, India-based Deccan Charters’ Mumbai facility has been approved as a Sikorsky authorized customer service center (CSC) to support the S-76 helicopter. “We are pleased to provide in-country aftermarket support services. Aligned with our international strategic initiatives and overall commitment to our worldwide customers, this agreement serves as an important launch point in India,” said David Adler, president of Sikorsky Aerospace Services. The Mumbai CSC will provide S-76 operators with aftermarket support, including Sikorsky-trained local maintenance personnel for on-site maintenance management, inspections and parts procurement. According to a spokesman for the company, this latest approval is a continuation of the company’s commitment to increase its presence in India. Since 2007, Sikorsky has worked in tandem with Tata Advanced Systems (TASL) of Delhi to explore the creation of aerospace operations in India. Last year, Sikorsky and TASL expanded this association into a joint-venture agreement under which TASL builds S-92 helicopter cabins and other aerospace components for Sikorsky.
