Additionally, a team of five Sikorsky-trained technicians perform depot airframe repairs at the Tolemaida base. The capability to provide in-country depot maintenance significantly minimizes operating costs and aircraft downtime by eliminating the need to transport aircraft back to Sikorsky facilities in the U.S.
