PZL Mielec, a Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. company in Poland, has begun final assembly of the first S-70i Black Hawk helicopter. The production marks the beginning of a new helicopter in the Sikorsky product line, an international variant of the Black Hawk.

The first S-70i helicopter is expected to be completed in 2010. "The startup of the production line in Poland is a defining moment for the S-70i helicopter program," Bob Kokorda, Sikorsky Vice President for Corporate Strategy and Synergy, told reporters Sept. 1.

According to Kokorda, PZL Mielec plays a vital role in Sikorsky's expansion plans in Central and Eastern Europe. "To increase its presence in the international marketplace, Sikorsky has designated PZL Mielec as a final assembly center for the S-70i Black Hawk helicopter," Kokorda said. "Production of highly-advanced and combat-proven Black Hawk helicopters and cabins in PZL Mielec is expected to provide opportunities to numerous privately- and publicly-held Polish aviation entities."

Currently PZL Mielec works with 23 suppliers and subcontractors in Poland; that figure is expected to increase to about 100 in the future as the work progresses.

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., based in Stratford, Conn., in the United States, is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corporation, which provides a broad range of products and services to the aerospace and building systems industries.
