GKN Aerospace received an extension to its long-term agreement with Sikorsky for composite structural components for the H-60 Black Hawk helicopter. Continuing the decades-long support GKN has provided for the Black Hawk, the extension spans five years for structural components produced at GKN Aerospace’s facilities in Tallassee, Alabama.

“The Black Hawk is an iconic helicopter and a mainstay of multiple military and rescue services around the world,” noted Shawn Black, president of defense for the UK-headquartered tier 1 aerospace supplier. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Sikorsky on the Black Hawk and other vital aircraft.”

In addition to the structural components, GKN Aerospace supplies advanced rotor blades for multiple Black Hawk variants, including the HH-60W, UH-60M, and the S-70.
