Turkey Orders 109 Black Hawk Helicopters

Sikorsky announced that the Turkish Government has selected Sikorsky for a contract involving 109 derivative Black Hawk helicopters for multi-mission use. The aircraft will be assembled in Turkey by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) as the prime contractor and will include components supplied by Sikorsky and other American and Turkish companies.
The industrialization proposal will allow Turkish industry access to the Sikorsky global supply chain including sale of Turkish assembled aircraft to future Sikorsky international customers. The export potential coupled with future Turkish indigenous requirements could reach 600 helicopters. The baseline configuration of the Turkish T-70 helicopter will be based on the S-70i Black Hawk. The contract is settled for 10 years.
